“SQUELCHED ENTHUSIASMS”

Drive by Nicolas Winding Refn (q.v.):

  • (L) Feminine original typography (in the troublesome Mistral, which only Excoffon used well; designer uncredited). Matches all of: Refn’s insistence the picture is “feminine”; muscular, round-edged, delicately-named star Gosling; Driver’s kitteny-soft champagne satin windbreaker. Pink

  • (R) Masculine revised typography by tight-bodied silver fox James White, here in a departure from his dated, mechanistic signature style. Fuchsia
