So, I have this gigantic wish list of products that use typography in fun and smart ways.
And because it is that crazy and amazing gift-giving season, I thought I would share my list with you because you might have a type lover on your holiday shopping list.
The second half coming next week and maybe there will be a third!
And, if I've missed anything, please let me know in comments below. A girl has only so much time but she can have a long wish list :)
Seb Lester Limited Edition Dreams Print
This poster is just plain stunning but that's true of all of his work (yep, me = big fan).
The poster reads, "We shape our destiny if we believe in the beauty of our dreams".
Visit Seb’s Shop, Keep Calm Gallery for more details.
I've always been a fan of animals created out of type ever since Bembo's Zoo came out.
If you want to start educating a special kid in your life about the magic of typography through animals, this looks like a super fun way to start. And you never know, the type-loving adult in your life may love it too! (hint, hint)
Alphabeasties is available at Amazon.
Handlettered Map of London or New York

This is a limited edition DVD that is just wonderful. Typeface screenings have been selling out across the country but the DVD includes a sweet little limited edition poster. Heck, check out their shop. There are a bunch of limited edition posters available there, too!
Here’s a trailer:
Neutraface Slab Blocks
Neutraface is one of my all time favorite typefaces and these Neutraface Slab Blocks from House Industries are so much fun. I suppose these could be a gift for the kid(s) in your life but I'd love to display these on my bookshelf!
Typeface Memory Game
Created by ps.2 arquitetura + design from Sao Paulo, Brazil, this game will certainly demand some concentration. Learn some history and some of the more common typography terms. Buy the Typeface Memory Game at Amazon
