Friend and designer Samantha Curcio recently introduced me to the site Shorpy. Shorpy is a vintage photography blog featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1950s. There is hours of inspiration on this site. I love the images featuring signage with beautiful handwritten typography. Also the old branding like Dr Pepper below. It’s so awesome to see how brands have evolved.Read More
Happy Font Friday! I have an awesome vintage font for you this week. Roman Print Variously Shaded is from the 1800s and has been scanned at high resolution from vintage books. You can download the eps file from Vintage Me Oh My (if you’re not familiar with this site yet it has the most amazing vintage packaging, typography and signage inspiration!) Enjoy.

Happy font friday!! I’ve been inspired this week by a book that I brought from the fabulous designer Louise Fili. Scripts: Elegant Lettering from Design’s Golden Age is filled to the brim with gorgeous typography examples from throughout America and Europe. So today I’m sharing with you a beautiful script font called Breathe.
I love this quote from the designer about the font; “Breathe Pro is inspired in the Art of our predecessors, those who with a pen loaded of ink would decorate each letter, each page in such a lovely way. Yes, -lovely- is the word. We would not have the amazing lettering artists, calligraphers, typographers of nowadays if that -love for letters- had not traveled from generation to generation. Breathe Pro is an example of this love. An example of what Maximiliano R. Sproviero feels about typography and letters.” You can purchase Breathe from MyFonts for $20… bargain!
