Perfect Pitch vs Perfect Kerning

Off Topic: Ugh «
The type on Annie Leibovitz’s new book is total bullsh*t.

Normally I wouldn’t bother with this, but it’s not like a piece of cheap direct mail. It’s a hardcover monograph for a stellar artist and cultural force. If junk design is done for junk, who cares? But Random House and Annie Leibovitz should be in another class. If these folks can’t get their typography to even a basic standard of professionalism, then who will?

I wonder what’s more difficult (((painful?))), to have perfect pitch in a mostly tone-deaf world, or to have eyes so precisly tuned to the fine art of type-design?
