F37 Foundry

When a font gets put on a pedestal in all its glory......

I love the specimen books produced by F37 Foundry. Each of the fonts in their library have received a standing ovation on paper through the superb execution of a series of specimen books.

The books are limited editions, each having a print run of 250 and every single edition is hand numbered. Not only are the books well designed, but they are so well thought out in their execution. The use of materials, colour, the use of space on the page, the binding... all combine to create a really amazing piece.

The  Ginger specimen book  has an orange, flocked, embossed cover. Insane.

I love the contrast of the thin lines and big curves in their font Bella. It is a font that is traditional yet contemporary at the same time. The Bella specimen book is the same.

The use of colour and materials in the Bolton specimen book is amazing... The contrast of the heat embossed blue plastic cover with the paper. yum.

I'd like to frame these pages of the Jan specimen book...
