um, the best thing(s) ever.

Sometimes I am a little slow on the uptake. I only recently came across the design blog poppytalk which has Font Fridays!

Free fonts are just about as exciting as the new Man Shops Globe series on the Sundance Channel (which I don't get, but found on iTunes), which features Keith Johnson, a buyer for Anthropologie, on his shopping travels. I am pretty sure this show will incite terrible rumblings of wanderlust and quite possibly a few online purchases.

But back to the fonts. The fonts featured on poppytalk all originate from, which is another great discovery. You see, for me, since I am not going to be using lead type, I can print with any of these fonts, and while I seem to be addicted to sweet Caslon, it might be good to branch out.

and, apt for the season, Fall foliage!

Too much fun. I think I just overwhelmed my laptop with free type and images, but what are Fridays for if not for discovery, distraction and.... um, drinks! Happy Friday.
