Word as Image.

I am a true sucker for clever typography... well, heck, just beautiful typography & lettering in general. (Just one step in our home & this is confirmed with "letters" everywhere. Can't wait to show the nursery! eeekk!) I digress, Ji Lee, former Creative Director at Google, & NOW the Creative Director at Facebook, (whhhaaattt!? who is this man?) wrote Word as Image.

His rules: 1) Create an image out of a word, using only the letters in the word itself. 2) Use only graphic elements in the letters without adding outside parts.

His result is absolutely brilliant, witty, and innovative... this book is definitely moved to the top of my Christmas wish list. Ahem, Santa?!
