The Omega Man (1971). A custom job based on the 1970 Tom Carnase ITC typeface Busorama. A handful of characters are slightly different; the S in particular is a departure, and the C is instead based off the alternate E. Interestingly, the third and final A is unslanted and wasn’t designed as an alternate character at all - a bit clunky but it looks good in context. With Helvetica.
in 1984 New York type house, Pastore DePamphilis Rampone, published a book of poems and Massimo Vignelli designed the spread for the Robert Browning poem “Now!” The book titled, For the Love of Letters, is not in the archives, but we did find some of Massimo’s sketches and notes. Massimo was in good company here as other contributors included:
