Chip Kidd: Rising Sun


Another blast from the past. This really grabbed me when I was a little High School freshman. Mamma say What IS that awesome font??? I fed it through olde reliable WhatTheFont and got nothing! To those who don't know, this novel is a non sci-fi Crichton, about Japanese business intrigue (land of the rising sun, yo). The novel is a mystery, launched when the body of a beautiful model is discovered lying dead on the boardroom table. It was also a film with Sean Connery as the detective. I like that little highlight at the top of the red circle. It makes the circle look lick-able.

I love the fact that there's a service called WhattheFont. Perhaps in Crichton's case it's just called "Money."
