A spread from the introductory section of The Anatomy of Type
This image was generated from one of the book’s final PDFs, but we made one more edit before we sent the book to press. Can you spot the missing label?
I can have this book?
The Boscombe Valley Tragedy
Ya gotta love snarly Holmes.
There is something disturbingly sexy about this.
It’s so fascinating to see The Progression, as I call it: the cues that Brett took from the text and created a persona for the screen, and how Cumerbatch adapted the mannerisms that Brett brought to the character. It’s so brilliant.
DID I DO IT RIGHT
IT WASN’T THAT HARD WAS IT, GOD
Fuck you and your fucking gorgeous face, sir.
what video is this from?!
Oh. My. God.
Took the words right out of my mouth
asdfgh and i love that bump on his nose ^^
You know what I love about John and Sherlock?
That they’d give their lives for each other without a second thought. That they’d take another life to save each other without a second thought. That they’d only just met, and they’d already subconsciously committed themselves to each other for life. That every girlfriend John has eventually leaves, because they have to compete with Sherlock Holmes, and you know what? He’s fine with it. That Sherlock let John into his life, his experiments, his cases, within a day of knowing him, and that he never let him go. That even though neither of them is gay, and they certainly don’t have sex or kiss, they love each other unconditionally as couples do.
Best part? Even if they’re not romantic… they’re absolutely and certainly canon and they have one of the best friendships to ever exist. (x)
“Do you know any gay people?” Sir Ian McKellen asks the class. Silence. Heads shake. “Well, you do now. I’m gay.” It’s my turn to speak up. “You know two now. I used to go to this school — and I’m gay,” I offer. “You know three now,” a sixth-former chips in. The other pupils don’t look too surprised, and he seems admirably comfortable in his sexuality. Silence. Then: “Erm. Well. You know four now.” Heads shoot around to see a uniformed boy, leaning close to Sir Ian. Mouths fall slightly open — including mine — but nobody speaks. Then Sir Ian says, in that mellifluous voice of his, “Well. How about that? It turns out we all know quite a few more gay people than we thought we did.”
“Then just kiss me. Like this. Show me how you’ll give me children. Touch me. Feel my heat! Must you go? Must you? Can’t you stay?”
Good God… did I make the wrong decision to buy tickets for the CumberCreature screening?
BOTH screenings are amazing. Having seen both, I am telling you, Benedict as the Creature is one of the greatest things you will ever see.
Okay, can I just pop in here and say that Naomie Harris is also just lovely?
Sound advice for all artists.
suddenly everything makes sense
I am in a Frankenstein mindset after today…..
Oh, the man layers of The Batch. The bird short ones. This is awesome.
Benedict Cumberbatch for Jaguar
I thought I’ll add my new Sherlock outfits
