I’ve always loved the schoolbookish look of the typeface Clarendon originally cut in the 1800s, however there’s never been a really great digital version until my recent discovery of ClarendoNeo Pro. There are over 900 glyphs and ligatures to complete this face including a combined text/display weight, swash options, old style numerical options, Cyrillic, small caps, alternate and discretional ligatures, and fractions! Not to mention the gorgeous ornamented letters you see here! If you feel inclined to purchase, FontHaus is offering a new free font with purchase (Gross Pointe Metro) as well. Check it out! Clarendon has recently been thoughtfully researched and revived in 2007 by the German designer Björn Altmann.

This comb makes me glad I’m utilizing pregnancy hormones to grow my hair long again, I just might have to order one for the “hospital bag” since everything else will look hammered after childbirth!  After finding the Ampersand Necklace  from seller CrumpetCake, I realized that I don’t have ONE charm on my bursting charm bracelet that is typographic. For that matter, I don’t think I even bought a charm for when I graduated with my bachelors degree! Shame, shame this might have to get added to the collection as well.  Lastly, I just thought these simple swirl topaz earrings were so cool with the square ear-hooks. Find them here by seller BadCatJewelry who’s got …

I don’t generally feel like I MUST BUY certain advertised typeface, as usually it takes a client request or some serious thought. However upon opening today’s email, I was tickled to find Bodoni Script Pro flaunting it’s lovely swashes and alternates at me. I REALLY love Bodoni and other transitional and modern typefaces, so this feels like it might get added to the already outrageous library of 1200 sooner than later. Thoughts?
