Open Letter to James Cameron from Papyrus

Posted 6 years ago by Evan Tishuk

I almost walked out of Avatar after a few moments when I realized the subtitles were set in Papyrus. I have to imagine that Avatar's digital imaging team was not thrilled about the selection either. Maybe they are the ghostwriters behind Papyrus's open letter to James Cameron thanking him for legitimizing a typeface that, until now, was relegated to "New Age spa owners, suburban party planners, and young couples looking to save money by making their own wedding invitations".

Man now you got me noticing this font on cheeseball photographers' websites and whatnot. Makes me think about entering the world of competitive vomiting.

Top three uses of papyrus.

1. Day Spas
2. Restaurants with an "international" flair
3. Photographers

You forgot tea packaging or tea rooms... and anything historically touristy.
