A Field Guide to Typestaches

So, we are going a little poster crazy over here but I have to share my most favorite birthday present from my brother and his even sweeter half.  Introducing the coolest poster for lovers of type (like me). This super-clever work gives mustachioed personality to 30 fonts. Meet my new friends Mr. Helvetica Bold, the Dali-esque Mr. Filosofia, and Mr. Federal with his massive mo!

It's a great collaboration between between Tor Weeks and Old Tom Foolery, the poster is beautifully screen printed on cream card and is biggish, maybe about 450x700. I love!

Framed

We are in the process of framing some of our work, so with frames on the brain it's no surprise this caught our eye.  These cast resin wonders turn the most ordinary of objects into their own little whimsical works of art.  So lovely! It's the creation of Sherwood Forlee and Mihoko Ouchi, over at the. They have some very fun pieces, the Anti-Theft Lunch Bag is also worth a look.
