When appropriating or modifying existent art, attention to detail is key. Not only should reasonable fonts be chosen, but integrating them with consideration to color, texture, and degradation is critical to completing the illusion. In this poster (by Matt Cory of Right Mind Media) some fonts work perfectly, some are anachronistic, but note the slight Photoshop dodging on "THE SET." This gives the type the effect of having shine marks, just like its surrounding background, and makes that particular assembly look natural, and of a whole. Well done. CORIANTON HALE
