There is something about the alphabets by Jacopo Severitano that I LOVE. I just gave an interview on current trends pinpointing a kind of modern ornament in a monoline style and his work is totally it. Check out the Hecatoncheir project too.

I do love when things are done in actual life and not just photoshopped. I guess Pierre Delort’s work is a bit of each, or he’s just that FREAKING good! ;-) I think these pieces are immaculately done. Love it!

Check out this elastic font by young UK designer Jenny Kyvik Hutchens. I really love the shape of the letters and how the material (the rubber bands) has influenced the way it looks.

So from plastic yesterday to organic today. I’m excited to use some of the sets from The Organic Type on a project because I have such a softspot for letterpress. They come as highres PSDs and then you can knock yourselves out with playbill block like type. I’m quite curious to see if this beats my acetone tecnique.

Ohh how I love the wonderfully pretty and feminine world of Deanne Cheuk. I noticed her embroidered cover for Gestalten and of course I was sold. I also love the typework that she has done on numerous editorial openers. Especially the one using Jonathan Barnbrook’s font Tourette which I ADORE!

Vespasiano Amphiareo

Was doing a bit of cleaning on my harddrive when I came across these scans from Vespasiano Amphiareo book on writing from 1548. I am always amazed to see what was done by hand in those days. Somehow it makes me sad that I don’t have skills remotely like this when it comes to handwriting. But still, I do so enjoy looking through stuff like this because it’s just still stunning.

Uhhhh I really want these posters by Spanish Atipo. Just LOVE that they’re called Fontfaces. Such a good title. But wouldn’t it actually be more correct to call them typefaces? OK enough of the nerd talk, love them no matter what!

Oh yum! Look it this little number by Porchez Typofonderie. It’s a moderne take on a neo classisistic font I’d say. And isn’t it just so special? It’s definitely in my virtual shopping basket.

Marian by Paul Barnes

I have fallen in love with a new font by Paul Barnes. It’s called Marian and it comes in a huge variety of romans and italics, even a black letter version. Don’t know where the name comes from but I wonder if it’s a Bantjes homage. There is something about it that reminds me of her work.

Being a big fan of hand lettering I am also a big fan of Joel Holland. I keep wanting to practice my handwriting just never get around to doing it. Am I the only one whose once pretty handwriting now looks like 5 year old’s?
