I am trying to find the perfect gift for a dear friend who is pregnant with twins (yes Andrea, I mean you!) Enter alphabeasties: and other Amazing Types. This beautifully thought out concept features animals created out of representative typefaces. There's a dachshund made out of Bauhaus "d"s and an alligator made out of Volta. Is it ever too early to teach children about good design? Created by the brilliance that is Werner Design Werks and available at Amazon.com or Chronicle Books.

I have been spending a lot of time in my home office lately and realized that the monochromatic decor leaves a lot to be desired. I found inspiration at Harmonie Interieurs. I especially like the green paint with alphabet stickers. When visiting their website, don't miss the section showing pictures of the artist's home. Truly beautiful.
We all know that budgets are tight right now and that Helvetica Neue and Garamond are perfectly fine and utilitarian choices. But, what happens when you need something REALLY special? Head on over to Letterhead Fonts. Just make sure you have font purchasing in your budget because once on this website the credit card will come out. Enjoy!
