Typography Tuesday: Gift Ideas for the Typography Nut

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".

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.

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!
