Love In Vain

I just got turned onto this company in Estonia called Hand Made Fonts. They have a unique font collection like no other. Fonts made from things- dirt, rocks, paint, foam, etc. I think you are talking about a very specialized use for these collections, but they are pretty cool.

I remember when Sagmeister was in town and he was showing images from his book where he spelled words out of objects. So I gotta wonder what are the practical applications for these, beyond art projects?

Check them out online: I like the hairy ones and ones made of food, like chili peppers.

Right now we are listening to some live Dead (is there any other kind?!?!) and it is making me dizzy... maybe I better eat some lunch.
