Type on Thursday

Living typography at the Hamilton Type Museum

The Hamilton Type Museum is a type lover's dream come true. Wired introduced me to this celebration of the history of printing explaining that the, "Hamilton is a working museum, where first-time visitors and longtime patrons alike can get their hands dirty. Ten of the museum’s 62 printing presses work, and visitors can learn entry level typesetting or basic letterpress printing."

Fonts in Use

Fonts in use is one of my favorite websites to browse for inspiration. Books, magazines, signs, and other fonts in the wild are shared. Both users and staff submit different examples that are easily sorted by medium, font, industry, or key word.

First Time Ever by Seb Lester

Roberta Flack's "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" is the inspiration this Seb Lester poster. He combines elegant calligraphy with swirls and stars in beautiful homage to this classic love song. Personally, I love the black and gold version, but the white poster would be a perfect traditional wedding gift. I do have two brothers and a sister that are unhitched.
