AC / DC

Man, those guys in AC/DC haven't aged too well...

Buy this book: AC/DC: The Savage Tale of the First Standards War

Compelling cover, but my first thought was it was about AC/DC (the band), rather than the electricity. Weird. I wonder if they should have stayed away from anything that looked metal (embossed-look letters, silver on black).

Either that or there will be a lot of metalheads out there learning about current....

Let's not forget the album HIGH VOLTAGE.

Which will now play in my head all day.

Yup, I thought it was about the band, too. But more than that my eye is somehow drawn to the tiny "The" in the sub-title. It looks very out of place to me.

I wish the had restraind themselves with the use of "Brothers" by Emigre. It's becoming the new Rosewood.

is the "the" a dipthong or something? Just press apple shift whatever and there it is?

The "the" is a adobe woodtype ornament. I've always wanted to use one, but have never found the right place. Perhaps this proves there is no good use for this glyph.
