Tee is for Typography

Is your ‘type’ tall, dark, and handsome like Caslon, or is it trim, unfussy, and classically good-looking like Helvetica? Well, now you can wear your font-loving heart on your sleeve, literally, thanks to Masashi Kawamura’s typography tees. He’s taken the shape of five famous fonts — Helvetica, Caslon, Courier, Baskerville, and Cooper Black— and parlayed the outline of their form into wearable T-shirts that are, as Derek Zoolander might say, ridiculously good-looking!

About Hannah

"Q: Where do cantaloupes go for the summer? A: John Cougar Mellon Camp!" From that joke you can surmise a few things about Hannah -- she loves a good pun, she delights in irreverence, and red peppers are her vegetable of choice. How does one figure out Hannah loves red peppers from that joke? Hmm, that's top secret. Hannah also adores outdoor activities, arts & crafts, reading, and being abroad.

    The Baskerville and the Cooper Black are both amazing, I want them both! I had to share this with my marketing design friend, she’s obsessed with font faces :D
