All this just makes me happy. I found a whole box of those white plaster letters!

No E, Just a U.

Wednesday 02.02.11

I was in France not that long ago, and this is what I brought home. Well, I did escort some chocolate and caramels back to NY, but those are long since gone. And they were gifts anyway.

Is This Where We Are Headed?

Thursday 11.04.10

Well is it? Gosh, I hope not. Found this telling bit of typographic excellence at one of my favorite blogs, Friends of Type. I think we have Erik Marinovich to thank for this, but it’s a little hard to tell where the credit lies. It could also be from Uppercase, which is another much-loved site and magazine. Who knows. And in truth, I’m a little despondent right now, so I’ll leave it up to you to find out.

Sound It Out…

Wednesday 10.13.10

Found these over-sized flash cards today at John Derian’s shop in NYC. I get a little weak in the knees when I see single words (cows and sheep notwithstanding) on oak tag. With radius corners no less.  Molly, eat your heart out!

French Type

Tuesday 08.31.10

So, these succulent images come from a French type book that was unearthed at a flea market in France by my over-the-top talented friends Kaari and Molly (who also happen to be sisters) on their second annual Chateau Dumas getaway. Thus far, I haven’t been able to join them on their excursions, but seeing the photos from their recent sojourn is almost as satisfying. Well, not quite. As a postscript to today’s visual feast, I should note that coincidentally Molly most generously posted a bit about Mrs. Easton…today. I say many thanks Ms. Meng!

At the risk of dating myself, I’m pretty sure I remember when I first saw this video.

Plaster Q

My plaster Q was a little pricey at eleven bucks, but it makes me happy. Ah, small pleasures.
