Typographic Matchmaking Poster  letterpress
Given many of our previous posts, it's obvious that Pretty Things has a thing for gorgeous typography and this letterpress poster is no exception. Jim Godfrey, a professor and designer in Utah, created this stunner featuring historical couples in contrasting typefaces. While the font matching here seems effortless, it is actually extremely hard to pair different typefaces and often requires hours upon hours of experimentation to get it right. Add letterpress printing to the mix and you've got yourself quite a handful! However, the results can be amazing if you know your stuff, and clearly Jim does.
