A recent addition to my font library has been the beautifully ornate Phaeton by Kevin Cornell. A gorgeous collection of letterforms, catchwords, swash variants and ligatures. Read more about the making of it here.

I’m loving this typeface by Marc Alcock created entirely from Pantone swatches.

Ok, so it’s not got all the detailed information of a Lonely Planet or a Rough Guide but Laurie Rosenwald’s typography and collages are so gorgeous to look at, the information comes second. Plus, it leaves you space to fill in your own New York finds. Ours included our amazing B&B right in the heart of SOHO and Delicatessen – the excellent SOHO eaterie which Marque Creative did the graphics for. I so love the typeface they used in the identity.

Think I’m going to purchase this print by Jim Datz which I saw on Three Potato Four (introduced to me by Conversation Pieces). I do already have a vintage map of Manhattan, but I’m thinking I may start up a collection of different maps of NYC… or perhaps of all my favourite American cities. Giving me an excuse to purchase this typographic print of Chicago from Ork Posters. I have a great love for Chicago (which you’ll find out more about in a later post) and the Manhattan Ork poster just wasn’t as nice to look at.

Another “how well do you know your fonts” game, but this time within a timeframe, so there’s added pressure.

At lunchtime I saw the most beautifully designed book – How To Drink by Victoria Moore. I’m sure the actual content is great but I was captivated by the typographic illustrations – amazing!
Turns out the designs were created by Here Design so I went to have a little look at their website and guess what else they have in their portfolio… Nigella’s Christmas, which I previously blogged about to say how fabulous I think it looks.
They have some other really beautiful stuff on their site like their branding and packaging for Gail’s Bakery – so all that remains to be said is… can I have a job please?!
