MoMA / 23 New Old Faces

Official announcement details new additions to the permanent collection.

Please see yesterday’s intriguing NYTimes article for more. There, Alice Rawsthorn’s story used an image of an iconic Experimental Jetset T-Shirt, yet only referenced the typeface, Helvetica. You gotta mention the EXJ, yo.
