A classic Halloween visual. Here’s a skeleton font from a new-to-me source: home machine embroidery. How the embroidery works: you install software from a website or disk and it tells your home embroidery machine—your enhanced sewing machine or dedicated device—how to make the letterforms or designs. This alphabet was developed by trishsthreads.com and is available here in several embroidery machine formats and two sizes for $7.99. You can contact trishsthreads at email@example.com.

Here’s the font in action:
a series of ethereal photographs by greek artist anastasia mastrakouli utilizes the nude human form to highlight the dialectical relationship between anatomy and visual art. each image is the product of an experimental performance, rendered as a composition of a silhouette and surface while conforming to the shape of the english alphabet. cut off from its physical nature, the corporeal becomes an abstracted imprint of a letter.

Typefaces in tattoos, flash or custom, fall into two main groups: block capitals with thick, filled-in verticals and/or mid-height serifs, or swooping, unreadable script. Most type in knuckle tattoos and banners is in the former camp; most type in large back and chest tattoos in the latter. See my blog post Foot Font Friday for script tattoos on feet.
Others range from the unconventional…
…to the insufferable:
Kind of a hybrid between capitals and script:
A few examples of script:
This says “Memories Over Material.” Honest.
No idea what this one says. Let me know if you do.
And this one which is totally awesome. You figure it out.
You also get anomalous typefaces such as this:
And of course some goddamn designer had to go and get this piece proclaiming their love for their favorite typeface. It’s set in Helvetica, naturally.
