ANYWAY, here's a great typeface.

i know I have been awful at posting recently, but this is a month of madness before my degree show and I really need one less thing to think about! As soon as everything is handed in I will be posting like mad, in part to distract myself from the fact that I don't know what to do after I graduate....

I bought a whole load of old bus tickets a few weeks ago. I love all these old bits of ephemera because of all the clashing typefaces, all the information and grids and because I love the cheapness of it. There's something about cheaply made tickets and the like, the numbers printed on badly and wonky, things like that. I love the randomness of it. And also because of the fact that they were once just everyday items, and now we see them as something beautiful. I wonder what everyday items we have now will one day be looked at in the same way?

I just got back from a long weekend at home. I went for a walk around Charterhouse before I left, it's this old private school near our house, which is really atmospheric and full of strange architecture and beautiful grounds. I love all these mad old halls and dorm houses, very Harry Potter. I never used to think much of it, seeing as it was always there throughout my childhood, but after leaving home and not seeing it for months at a time I have appreciated it again.
