Happy Fontastic Friday everyone!  What an excellent way to help us get to know our fonts, non?  Manifested by San Francisco based art director Tor, this great visual representation of the marriage between design and pop culture makes me dream of my favorite mustachio-ed men… (which I never mind doing)

Let’s see, I think my long time love Tom Selleck (aka Magnum, P.I.) is a classic Chevon and can’t be represented with any of the above brackets, but a young and super dreamy Sam Elliot is definitely rocking the Mr. Century Ultra.  And as much as I don’t really love being on the receiving ‘smooch’ end of a big ol’ mustache, I do appreciate the man-ness of them and wouldn’t kick either of these fellas off ma’ lips that’s for sure.

For more Tom Selleck magic be sure to check out this goodness here.

Love this print by Portland, Oregon based duo Jolby (Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols).  I’m feeling a pull towards the sea today…

Unfortunately the first print is sold out from their etsy shop, but they have plenty of other beauties to oogle at.  (like the above ‘Traditions’)

Also check out grain edit‘s post on their handiwork here.

And if you haven’t had enough of the sea, have a peak at my all time favorite sea illustration here.

Here we are at Friday already! Exciting plans for the weekend? I will be working, but as always, dancing along way. I’m going to finish up my lazy design, music appreciation week(s) with these gorgeous graphics from the 1,700 tape box collection of W. Eugene Smith, prolific American photographer who documented the New York Jazz scene from 1957 – 1965 in his tiny loft. See you on Monday!

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)
