10 Famous Filmmakers and Their Favorite Typefaces

created at: 09/17/2012

The notion of "auteur theory" maintains that the film should be the result of the director's creative vision, and that the final film should represent a voice "distinct enough to shine through all kinds of studio interference and through the collective process."

When I look at these, I start to have a little more understanding for why sci-fi and fantasy fans do things like create elaborate costumes and fan fiction.
