I am incredibly lucky to live with a talented Graphic Designer and self-confessed typophile. We both spend an unhealthy amount of time pouring over typography blogs and type foundry font specimens! I was really lucky to stumble upon the work of Jose Antonio Perona whilst browsing on Flickr today, I loved the image that you can see at the top of this post so much that I had to give it top billing. I am agonizing over the font styles for this blog at the moment and foresee many changes of mind over the coming days before I find something that sticks. I feel that I should have one of those signs up that reads “PLEASE IGNORE OUR APPEARANCE WHILE WE ARE DRESSING OUR WINDOWS!”. Get set for the Lou Lou & Oscar blog redesign that is coming soon.
In honour of my typographic travails I would like to share these amazing finds with you.
