My favourite characters: August

Tumblr is such a vibrant visual feast of experimental and masterly type and lettering. It’s tempting to blog dozens of inspiring typographic images each month but in order to keep things concise, here’s a round-up of projects that have caught my eye this month on tumblr and beyond.
