Typography can be more than just words, much more. Typography is a form of art that is nearly limitless, and is a field where expression is a key factor, and originality is crucial. When I say nearly limitless, there is only one true limit; and that is the fact that typography always needs to be legible.

Wow. I normally don’t dig these kind of image-dump posts, but this is a fantastic effort. Thanks for the nice way to finish the week off! Really top notch :)

Some absolutely awesome examples here… I think I may even buy one or two.

Did I see you say “legigle”? In some cases not even recognizable, but great fun to see, an exercize on seeing what you can get away with. I kept asking where could this be used? ===gm===

This is a crazy list! I like it, at least for the sheer madness in some of those creations. The Eyelash Typeface was just too much.

Of course, some of the more practical ones, like Destructive Vintage TyPO experiment, Rolka, viki font, are very admirable.

I love the detail in the ‘In Love’ and ‘Mari’ typefaces.

The eyelashes one is just a bit creepy.

There’s some great ones, really original ones, and some that are just really hard to read (6 degrees?).

Thanks for this.
