208 views as of 15 December 2012 – Thank you.
I remember taking my first paycheck to the bank, cashing it, and going to the record store. I got New Sensations by Lou Reed, Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash, by the Pogues, and Dead Letter Office by R.E.M.
Through the years I have stuck with them all, but somehow ended up with another 14 R.E.M. albums.
Thanks for the ride guys!
You say you want Black text?
I also love the iconic tee (John&Paul&Ringo&George.) and Experimental Jetset, the Dutch trio who created it.
Read this part of an interview from a typography blog –
It’s always an awkward sensation to realize that something that you designed with your own hands now exists completely independent from yourself. The shirt is a phenomenon in its own right, and there’s nothing we can do about it. But then again, that might be the ultimate achievement as a designer: to create something that lives a life on its own. It’s classic Frankenstein really. We’re quite lucky that all the ‘bootleggers’ fully acknowledge us. Whenever the shirt pops up, on a website, weblog or forum, the caption always mentions that the shirt is inspired by us. So that’s a big plus. If people would deny that we designed the original shirt, now that would be frustrating; but luckily, that isn’t the case
