The Fonts of Blade Runner

When I was in highschool I was fastidiously infatuated with the 1982 science fiction classic, Blade Runner. At one point maybe more than Star Wars (although that's hairsplitting and might have more to do with my adolescent vacillation between Pris vs Leia). In fact, my yearbook write up listed my future goal, "to be a Blade Runner." Fast forward through a career in advertising, surrounded by design and typefaces and my obsession remains. And why this article caught my eye.
