typography love

im a bit of a font nerd. i really get a kick out of identifying the fonts in the end credits of movies. but moreover my love for helvetica, is the soft spot i have for hand drawn type.  im working on a few christmas gift and when searching for some inspiration i came across beau ideal's etsy shop and found this beautiful calendar. gorgeous hand drawn type of cultural and iconic celebrities in their birthday month. all hand screen printed in brooklyn.

Christmas A Go Go!

Christmas A Go Go! is up and running again.
They joyfully remind us of a few things:
1. Holiday music doesn't have to be Raffi or Mariah Carrie.
2. Contrary to popular belief, holiday music doesn't exist to make all of us non-mainstream people want to stay in the shadows during the month of December.
3. HOW FREAKING cool is the internet? That a group of bloggers can get together this time every year and put together this awesome blog where "You won't see any Wham, Band Aid, or Christmas Smashhits vol. 29... Think Christmas when the candy tasted a little sweeter, the Christmas tree was a bit greener, and the snow whiter."
