I love the work of Luke Lucas. This talented Melbourne typographer brings type to life! Luke's handmade type makes you want to interact with the words and reach out and touch the letters and get involved in its story. Luke is not only a type guy but is also a freelance creative, art director, illustrator and designer. Yep, it's all pretty cool!...

I love hand lettering, sign writing, pinstriping and type design from past times.

I found this video of Glen Weisberger, who taught himself this craft in the '70s, following on from the likes of Von Dutch and Ed Roth, who kick-started custom car a...

The first 3D printed book cover has arrived! Chang-Rae Lee's 'On Such a Full Sea' is comprised of a white slip cover featuring typography which is risen from the surface of the book giving it a surreal and intriguing look. The slipcover was designed by Riverhead's art director Helen Yentus and took 30 hours to print! Needless to say the books are limited edition costing $150 ...
