Random Post: Heartbreak

Typography Plus Philately = Nerd Heaven

Those who know us, know that we are not much for postal mail. Our only interaction with Canada Post comes when we intermittantly deposit our Zip discs in the cherry-red neighbourhood postbox. And when our latest eBizzle purchases arrive. So, we’re not confident that a mere stamp would be enough to rekindle a long-dead love affair with snail mail. But if a stamp could, this would be it (via):


The stamp uses letter forms from Canadian designer Carl Dair’s ‘Cartier’ typeface to form a highly stylized beaver which (to our thinking) feels inspired by Tlingit or Haida art. It’s beautiful and has undeniable typography-nerd appeal. Could there be anything better?
