Lovely Lettering

W

hen you buy a box of Ritz crackers, on the back of the box, they have all these suggestions as to what to put on top of the Ritz. “Try it with turkey and cheese. Try it with peanut butter.” But I like crackers man, that’s why I bought it, ’cause I like crackers! I don’t see a suggestion to put a Ritz on top of a Ritz. I didn’t buy them because they’re little edible plates! You’ve got no faith in the product itself.

Of course I had to use a quote from my favorite comedian, Mitch Hedberg, to show off these beautiful letters by typographer and illustrator Jessica Hische. Check out Daily Drop Cap to see the rest of her pretty alphabet!

Back with a vengeance!

I took a little break from my blog, mostly because after moving to Chicago I wasn’t sitting at a computer for 8 hours a day, but I am BACK. I have been meaning to post something for awhile and something actually triggered me to do it! And here is what it was. (has to do with food of course)

How interesting are these? Simon Attwater creates these “shopping losts” from people’s shopping lists that he finds! Love it.
