Type Treats

Just recently I’ve been finding lots of nice typography themed items – it’s like I have a built-in radar for these things! I thought I would share them with you guys:

I’m still drooling over the alphabet make up bags in Oliver Bonas – maybe I should just buy one and get it over with now?

After discovering the Tottenham Court Road Paperchase in the first month of my London life, it’s now my favourite Paperchase branch – 3 floors of creative heaven:

Slightly out of character for England, we’ve been enjoying some gorgeous weather – anyone would think it’s summer! The perfect excuse to hang this cute sign up and put some shrimp on the barbie.

J for Jack and N for Natasha….

Jack & I found these mini initial cards with a range of fonts (but our initials happened to match – awww) which are perfect for writing lovey-dovey notes to your other half, friend or relative…

…and it even matched the circus font N necklace that Sara and Glen bought for me (not sure where it’s from though) – thanks again guys!

Also featuring some circus font I spotted these white mugs with black lettering and colour edging on top for £6, although I couldn’t find an N so I’m not sure if they stock every letter in the range.

Upstairs in the posh section (the more exclusive collections in glass cabinets) I found more type mugs, but this time with 22ct gold detailing and matching saucers:

Oooh! At £24 each, I can imagine that only fruit teas would be sipped from these beauties.

But don’t worry, there’s something for you coffee addicts too:

Bauhaus, Courier, Gill Sans and Arial espresso cup and saucers – £18. I couldn’t help but wonder where Helvetica was hiding though…

Before partiyng at the Holi colour festival the other week, Lucy, Ellie & I popped into the London Designer Outlet:

They have wireframe cubes suspended in the sky!

We found some typographic bargains in the M&S outlet in Wembley*:

A is for amazing prices and these awesome triangle pattern towels – all discounted to outlet prices.

Lucy spotted a massive N in one of the restaurant windows (Cabana, I think?) too. Bargains, typography and triangles – I don’t venture west often but it would seem that place is right up my street!

And if that wasn’t enough for you, I also keep seeing typographic mugs and porcelain knobs in Tiger. Typographic mugs are EVERYWHERE at the moment so don’t deprive your kitchen any longer and get in on the type hype!

Let me know if you’re investing and send me a selfie with your mugs – I’d love to see the type hype selfies & I’ll share my own when I’ve finally found an N mug! Fingers crossed I won’t have to wait too long…

    I am a stationery nerd! Have you seen the beautiful notebooks made by Lovely Pigeon or StudioSarah? I love my moleskine, but cutesy things are nice for a change!

      Studio Sarah is always amazing and funnily enough I came across Lovely Pigeon at the weekend. So much nice stationery, so little time 🙂

    • Like GingerTuppence, I too have a bit of a stationery nerd/junkie, and just love seeing where typography shows up in daily life. Such great examples you have shared. Thanks.

        Thanks for stopping by Barb – what’s not to like about stationery!? 🙂 Yes, typography definitely helps to make everyday life nicer
