I love, love, love seeing fonts I have mentioned ‘out in the wild’. It’s a little thrill every time. Heck, I love seeing any font I have admired out in the real world on packaging, places and things. I love playing a little game of ‘ident-i-font’ with myself, it’s the little things in life…
I spotted Carolyna Black Pro on a darling baby book I picked up. I love how the designer was able to balance the sans serifs with the flowy lettering of the Carolyna Black font. This font suite by Emily Lime has so many glyphs and alternates that you can really customize it to make it feel like your own. I really need to do a tutorial soon on how to access glyphs and alternates in your fonts, it will open up a whole new world of possibility and creativity!
On the baby book front, I had been searching aimlessly for a baby book that wasn’t too garish, too cheap feeling, too expensive and just well simple, Compendium Press came through, but I am curious if any of you have other suggestions? I think it’s important for me to be able to collect these memories as this time goes by so fast and well my memory is just a wee bit foggy right now!
