hype about type.

i love words and i’ve always been really curious/particular/interested in how they are rendered. this is why i constantly take photos of signage. this is why the font on a menu can put me off eating at a particular restaurant. this is why i refuse to read emails that are written in comic sans.

when my fellow word-enthusiast and type-lover, Q, sent me this link, the humble paperclip was redeemed.

i love linzie hunter’s approach. it inspires me to buy a plain notebook and spend a few minutes each day drawing and decorating my own colorful, custom alphabet.

her atomic alphabet collage is fun too:

i’ve always appreciated type made out of random objects. more of what’s below here.

sticks and stones might break my bones, but they make an awesome N.

and hooray for leaves:

this is my kind of sky writing. (not sure who created this, but i spied it here)

and finally, i’ll leave you with artist, sam winston, who takes type and words to the next, next, next level and creates these beautiful, delicate, pieces of art.

    Hi Golriz

    I’m one of those stranger who occasionally read your blog (I’m not creepy, I promise!) because I find it funny and often inspiring. Since we have similar tastes (humour, art, vintage) I’ve been introduced to some great things through your site, so thank you :)
    Just wanted to give you a heads up that lately when I go on your page a “malware” warning covers my screen and I have to ‘agree to the possible harm’ that may come to my computer before I proceed. I’d thought you should know.

    And I absolutely Adore that sky font.
