This is one of those where I came across an image and had to go looking…I mean how cool is this hand done type? Definitely warrants ‘da bomb’ titling. The table (above) I came across on one of Design Sponge‘s Before & Afters. Not only do I love the way the type came out on the wood (the artist Liz actually hammered the letters in!) which looks very typewriter-y, in a good way, I also love how Liz flowed the letters around the wood instead of trying for a grid. My favorite part is where ‘precious’ jumps over the little hole. Makes me want to run my fingers over the whole poem.
I was so entranced I went looking further I found this awesome installation.
The entire library moved and the oaks wereincorporated into the design from the beginning. I commend the person who came in and pitched this concept. Such a wonderful and unique installation that I can see many clients I have worked with shooting down in an instant since they wouldn’t have the vision to picture it.
