Twitter Web App : EK Smith Museum Here’s a tape cover I made for my second band, The Monsters, from when I was 13 – probably illustrated with a ballpoint pen, typeset on my family’s typewriter, reproduced on the photocopier at my mom’s office. Also a photo of me from a year or two before that, for reference.

iPhone : Hey sweets 👋🏾 Most people might not know that the Juneteenth Flag (left) is different from the Pan African flag (right). While they are both used to signify black unity, their meanings are different.

Twitter Web App : If you enjoy absurd type nerdery, pull up a seat for Jean-Baptiste Levée’s talk about “a fun side-project cataloguing all geographical places named ‘font’ in France”. Starting now in the TypeLab Europe channel:
