Run, don't walk, to Design*Sponge for more fonts than you can handle. Today is their Font-Themed day!

Check out how people use font-inspired decorations in their home (here & here), watch videos of font designers talking about their work, and enter the "Design Your Own Alphabet" contest.

If only I had 80 more hours in my day to sit here and read this blog cover-to-cover. Enjoy!

Ampersand Foil Shirt

This should really be titled "all I want for Christmukah".

From Inskie, the product website:

"The ampersand tee was created by Colorcubic, a multidisciplinary design studio in Portland, Oregon. Inspired by typography, it incorporates Inksie's four brand icons in the shape of Herb Lubalin's famed ampersand."

You can purchase the ampersand tee from Inksie here.
(Thank you to Sandy for this!)

P.S. I want this, too. -->

Word of the Day: Desultory

Desultory, adj.

- lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order; disconnected; fitful
- digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random
- passing or jumping from one thing to another, especially in a fitful way; unmethodical
- occurring in a random or incidental way; haphazard

My favorite part about these definitions? How they all begin with at least a seven-word definition, followed by a semi-colon, then a one-word definition. Why not just use the one word and be done with it?
