Worth a re-link: Jon Ronson’s 2004 story for The Guardian on the archive of material Stanley Kubrick left behind at his estate:
“It’s Futura Extra Bold,” explains Tony. “It was Stanley’s favourite
typeface. It’s sans serif. He liked Helvetica and Univers, too.
Clean and elegant.”
“Is this the kind of thing you and Kubrick used to discuss?” I ask.
“God, yes,” says Tony. “Sometimes late into the night. I was always
trying to persuade him to turn away from them. But he was wedded to
his sans serifs.”
