Typofonderie Wallpaper set in Mislab

Time to time, we offer several desktop wallpapers, download them and enjoy! The new wallpaper is set in Mislab, a typeface designed by Xavier Dupré, exclusively distributed by Typofonderie.

Indeed bad fonts can’t produce as horrible diseases as described on this wallpaper set in Mislab. The original content is borrowed from the cover of Fact, volume one, issue six, winter 1964. This magazine was designed by Herb Lubalin, not only well known for his typography but also for his ability to work both forms and content. Adrian Shaughnessy, in his very good Herb Lubalin, American Graphic Designer 1918-81 describes the cover as:

The original cover was a satiric depiction of a Coke bottle as a syringe set the critical tone for an eight-page article by contributing editor Warren Boroson, pointing out that Coca-Cola was not the harmless elixir of the American popular imagination.
