Friday Favourites

One of my favourite presents this Christmas (apart from the package that opened up to reveal a pair of slipper socks and two packets of pork scratchings – genius) was an amazing book, Just My Type by Simon Garfield. Engrossing, fascinating and endlessly interesting – even to those who might be slightly less typeface-obsessive than me – the inside cover featured a brilliant Periodic Table of Typefaces.

And so here’s my Friday Favourite this week – created by Squidspot design agency, who offer the option for you to print your own version. It’s also available in a number of formats from US company Scribble On Everything.

This is officially one of my favourite things ever.

Personal favourites, I hear you ask? Pretty keen on Gotham (Go), partial to Frutiger (Fr), and also strangely drawn to Rockwell (Ro).
