Typography Fence Art by Lambchop

I love it when someone’s idea is not just clever, but it makes you stop and think like Lambchop’s Typographic Fences project. The Michigan-based artist weaves words and phrases into chain-link fences using ordinary flagging tape.

Added to various fences in the United States and around the world, the giant words appear to almost float mid-air like suspended thoughts to make you stop, take a breath, and acknowledge what it says.

Macula, the impossible typeface by Fonthausen

Macula was originally designed for a design pitch for the graphic design organisation in Breda, the Netherlands. After the pitch, the typeface was expanded with a complete Latin characterset. Each character has a counterpart.

The family consists of four styles, each built with opentype features like contextual alternates (re-orders the characters and their counterpart), stylistic alternates and extended kerning and local language features.

Macula is available at boldmonday!

New York-based design studio Vault49 has created a series of hand-painted saws as part of a statement project about international budget cuts, titled “(SUB)PRIME-CUTS”.  Speaking about the project they say, “Budgets are being butchered all around the world, and even worse it’s been done in such bad taste. These finely crafted financial tools should trim the fat nicely.” Sink your teeth into these viciously hand-crafted beauties!

 Find out more about the project here.

Type City is the recent artwork by artist Hong Seon Jang that uses pieces of movable type from a printing press to create an elaborate cityscape. It’s fascinating to watch as the need for printed books and typography wanes, the unused objects themselves are more frequently used as an actual medium. Jang also completed a much larger Type City in 2009. Images courtesy Hong Seon Jang and David B. Smith Gallery. (via ColosalQuipsologies)
