In my personal findings I think generally if you’re a big fan of Scrabble, you can usually appreciate a good font and typography design as well. That’s why I think this Scrabble set would be huge if it came into fruition – this set was designed by Industrial Design Student Andrew Clifford with the idea to give Scrabble players a choice of what font they’d like their set to come in. It’s unclear if this will be available to purchase anytime soon, but let’s cross our fingers that this inspires Scrabble to pick up his design!

I’ve been into Jessica Hische‘s original and gorgeous work for a little while now and I think it might be time to finally buy a print from her.
She just released her newest Daily Drop Cap prints and I think now that Nick and I share a last name, we might need this pretty S to frame and put on the wall above our couch. See more letters and prints here.

Just after coming across this beautifully designed font book by Norwegian student collective Studio 3, I found out the first print run of Hyperactivity Typography is sold out! Hopefully they print more so that I won’t be able to help but buy one when I most certainly stumble upon one in New York. Until then, I highly recommend you font nerds preview the book here.

I don’t know when it was exactly that I started appreciating fonts, but I would guess it goes back to high school’s Graphic Arts classes. I would scroll through the very limited list of fonts available to us on our old Apple computers and design logos for my then-band, Shannon Doll, so I could print out stickers in class.
The subculture of font lovers, admirers, and appreciators has just revealed itself to me within the last 5 years or so. I’m glad I’m not alone, not the only person who would sometimes spend a Friday night in or an entire afternoon at work, downloading new typefaces and feeling both productive and excited about Da Font’s new additions.
In the past 30 minutes (while I should be working on an article), I have found these two products sure to excite any font nerd.
