Type.Face.Lift

I'm a huge fan of Scrabble. My mother-in-law and I discovered "Bananagrams" together and now have an standing tournament that will go on into infamy. Like I've said in the past, I'm a puzzle girl.

I'm also a font girl. I can't say it's to a level of snobbery or ridiculousness, but I've got my preferences and appreciations. When my friend Aune sent this info my way, two worlds collided! Puzzles and typography combined into one glorious amusement.

Check out the A1 Scrabble set, designed by Andrew Clifford Carpener. LOVE! I hope it will actually be available post-haste. It's when things like this come out that you just kick yourself for not having come up with the idea first.

I'm beginning to think we were separated at birth.... Two things I LOVE - Scrabble and fonts. Eerie.
