You gotta love metal type

Here’s some of the metal type we’ll be including in the limited-edition boxes. Vintage examples of Helvetica Extended Bold… cast at the old Stempel foundry in Germany. Nice.

Awesome! I've just ordered the limited-ed. box - Can't wait! How do I know if I got one of the 1st 1000 copies!?

Gary says

Aug 19, 2007

Because there are only 1,000 copies, period! So you got one. Thanks Dan!

Is it possible to request a specific letter of the metal type?

Either way, I'll be ordering one shortly. I can't wait either!

I can't wait.. Ordered my copy yesterday, and now my only problem is that it'll be aaaaages before it's shipped.. Hoping to receive an "h"!

I ordered tickets for the Danish showing of the movie as soon as it was announced, but when the day came, I was too sick to get out of bed.. I'm still so sorry I didn't get to see it!

Come on guys, a individual letter of type is termed a "sort."

Please!

The store's under construction now, but I can't wait to order my limited edition copy! Will they be numbered? I'll have to get some of my design friends together and hold a "Helvetica" party.

Rob Gregory says

I will only order the limited edition if I can get a Capital "G". "G"-for ...Gelvetica

Rob Gregory says

Aug 21, 2007

Or a "V". "V" for ... Velvetica

Rob Gregory says

Aug 21, 2007

Just one problem... The "V" is backwards.

Gary says

Aug 21, 2007

Dude. You're out of control... get back to work, Rob!

Any PAL version? Or just the NTSC.

Gary says

Aug 23, 2007

NTSC. Most DVD players in Europe are dual-format PAL/NTSC now anyway.

Will the limited edition-release be numerated? That'd be cool..

Can't believe the limited edition DVDs are sold out! I just found out about this. Is it really sold out or will there be more later?

Deidre says

Man the midwest is so behind. We just had our screening and all the special editions are already sold out. That's it. I am moving to New York.

Will you be releasing another round of the Deluxe Edition DVDs? I (sadly) found out about this a bit too late and I really want a piece of metal type! Pretty-please?
