Hula Seventy: Letters Letters Letters

Contributer post by Andrea of Hula Seventy

I've been collecting old salvaged letters and numbers for about twelve years and honestly, I thought for sure I'd be over them by now. But I'm not. Not even close. In fact, my appetite for typography continues to hover somewhere near voracious. I can't seem to get enough. In terms of display, the possibilities are endless. To spell or not to spell? To jumble or not to jumble? More or less? Big or small? So many possibilities. And as the popularity of found typography increases, so do the ingenious displays. Please do allow me to call attention to a few favorites:

Whoa! Those oversized letters in the last picture are intense. Intensely cool.

i love the tiny "get up" above the bed as if it's a very polite command.

I really love the way these are used, unfortunately I don't think the hubs would like it :( He tends to think everything is clutter :p
