New York Magazine Embraces Tiny Cover Type
The New York Observer:
In a big, bold, screaming headline, you found the cover line: "THE FACEBOOK REVOLT" over a shot of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. But then there's all sorts of tiny type all over the place! Right above the headline, there's a red starburst with a word that says "Fraud." It's readable, but small. The words surrounding it on either side--"Plus the Houdini of" and "By Robert Kolker"--are tinier still. How tiny? The letters weigh in somewhere between the size of a grain of sugar and a grain of kosher salt.
