Fedra, oh Fedra, you are the one I want… Fedra, oh Fedra, whether A or B, you are perfect.

Fedra, oh Fedra, you were too dear for me I had to satisfy my craving for you by settling for Brioni…

7 | Bert Vanderveen (Enschede, The Netherlands) loves Brioni…

Oh Klim, you New Zealand wonder
I loved National
and to make it mine,
I spent my yearly allowance.


But then you drew Founders,
an even better Grotesk…


Now I am ‘in dubio’
stay National or go Founders?


I have the one,
I want he other.
What’s new?


For a future without my girl
either will do.

Miles away from my land there is a dead hawthorn…

If I put a sampling square

There would be love everywhere
In the whole quadraat.

That bitch takes ’em all
With her slim lines made of ink.

Such elegance should be made a sin;
For even the filthiest thoughts – Like those sung by that German in My Own Private Idaho –
once wrapped in DIN,
become as sensual and hip
as the self-estranged River Phoenix.

To us the weak, my fellow kin :
Best things are said in FF DIN.
