Lately, I’ve been getting back into typography. I finally began several projects using all my vintage wood and lead type — one notecard is featured here, lots more to come! You can pick up this card here. I love the impression the lead type leaves — it’s so incredibly deep and clean. And you can actually see the slightly bumpy surface of the wood type (“HELLO”) on the card.
I’ve also been lusting after several sculptural pieces that I can’t wait to have in my house. I’ve been dreaming of creating a home office with a full wall covered in 3-D typography for years now, and hopefully I’ll get to do it soon. A few pieces to get me started:
These stainless steel letterforms were rescued from a 1950’s era New York parking garage that was being demolished in 2002. They are available here.
These ceramic letters once lived to title 8mm & 16mm home movies. They are available at Portland’s Noun: A person’s place for things (which is such a clever name, I just love it!) as well as in their online store here.

Hi! Those letters are freaking awesome!
I have to say- I can absolutely relate to your statement about having a dual love for a big shiny imac and a big rusty press.
i happened across your site- love it – i’ll be back for sure :)
I have been lusting after these wire sculptures on Etsy: kristinemays.etsy.com
