Going to Helvetica in a hand-basket

Speculate no more. These images in from the folk at Clouds who are designing the Butler edited book for Venice. Quite rightly we were taken to task for our clumsy rendition of their cover and in particular our use of Helvetica (50 years old this year). What is it with Helvetica? Half the designers we know (young ones) use it all the time, the other half hate it.
