Ghost signs & folk type

I love spotting a nice bit of typography on the street, whether it be freshly hand-painted signage, some battered decaying advertisement, or a vintage relic ‘ghost sign’ sprawled over the side of a building. i’ll always snap a photo if I have my camera on me. Here’s a few I’ve spotted around where I live and work – I’ve geo-located them all on Flickr if you’d like to go spot them yourself.

Jessica Hische letterpress drop caps

Typographer extraordinaire Jessica Hische has selected her favourite letters from her Daily Drop Caps series and had them beautifully letterpressed in bold red and black. I love the idea of buying a few and spelling out a word with them for a big impact – they’re just $40 each from her store.

Here’s a nice video of Jessica talking about her caps and the letterpress printing process, which was shot at her solo show at Art in the Age in Philadelphia.
