FONTastic!: official Elvis

This is one of the best/funniest bits of graphic design I’ve ever seen.  This is apparently the real deal people.  King-like bold, but not king-like fancy.  Gotta respect the simple when it could have been all bedazzled a la his suits…

{ Roman Extended + Roman Condensed }

These are the kinds of books I dream of finding when I go hunting at my local thrift shops.  So much fontal chubbiness & elegance.  Not being a graphic designer I wouldn’t even make proper use of them, I would just hoard & oogle.

But in my defence, there is something about old books that just makes one feel so connected to the past.  (I love this until it comes time to move and I learn how heavy the past is…)  The magic computer box is amazing and full of more content than any one library could hold (AND is so easy to carry), but no matter how hard I try to connect with it, it will never do the same thing for me that a good old book does. (maybe I could invent ‘old book smell’ for computers… or just maybe not)

This FONTastic specimen was designed by Travis Stearns and can be found over at the lovely ‘you work for them‘.  

And sometimes cut and paste says it best…

“Pierre is a handset alphabet that strolls along the Rue de Weird. He winks at all the old women and pulls faces at the young pretty ones. Pierre does not talk to anyone. But his gestures are exaggerated, round, and jovial.”
