friday the 13th...


I had no idea there was a Friday the 13th this month until today, lol... and right before Valentine's day this time! Good thing 13 is a lucky number for italians... and speaking of Numbers, I love H&FJ's collection...

"For more than a century, typefounders considered numbers separately from the provision of other printing types. Nineteenth century type specimen books often displayed a separate section containing fonts of numbers alone, many of which contained unique features suited to specific kinds of settings... the practice of creating specialized number fonts began to disappear at the beginning of the twentieth century, vanishing completely by the dawn of the digital age. But recognizing the usefulness of this practice, H&FJ has revived the tradition with its Numbers series of fonts."
