1960s love song poster

These are pretty neat from Typography Shop. As you may well have guessed, they’re a couple of posters featuring love stories made up from song titles of the 1960s and 70s, apparently with the 80s coming along soon as well. They’re currently on pre-release for $17.50 each and will be shipping on or near to June 18th.

Big news coming out of Typography shop recently:

We’re clearing the shelves of every single item in stock while we work on transitioning the line to a third party fulfillment site, possibly utilizing a print on demand method. It may be your last chance to pick up these designs silk screened for awhile. And you’ll save big time.

We’ll still be printing product for retail outlets, online resellers and flash sale sites, but won’t be carrying stock for the time being. We will let you know as soon as our designs are available online again. Having sold all over the world these past 4 years I want to continue to serve customers anywhere. We will re-launch the shop for the George Lois poster project, possibly with a small selection of shirts.

Patrick wanted to make it absolutely clear that Typography Shop is not closing, that’s not what this is, it’s just a change for the business to make it more adaptable so he can focus on different things right now.

When I say I don’t understand this ‘Counter’ t-shirt, I mean it, I’m not trying to be cute and giving you guys a wink and nudge to post the answers or what you think it means, I genuinely don’t know since I don’t have a typography background beyond “hey, those words look nice.” Here’s what Typography Shop have to say about the shirt:

Typographic anatomy with at least a quadruple entendre.
We’re pleased to announce a new shirt on TypographyShop. Counter is our latest release. A simple term of typographic anatomy, “Counter” and the “O” surrounding it are full of meanings beyond the intended one. As with our Sans design, the ambiguity of the shirt’s message for the typographically challenged will be sure to elicit many an interesting conversation.

I’d wanted to release a design about type anatomy for some time, but there are dozens already on the market illustrating all aspects, dissecting several letters and their respective terms. We thought we’d go minimal and define just one. Set in Futura Bold and printed in white and grey on a black tee or tank.

Having written all that, I’ve now gone and looked at the product page and have a vague understand of what ‘counter’ means in a typographic sense, but there’s at least four more way to attack this design, so have at it in the comments, take me to school guys!

Typography Shop’s Biggest Sale Ever

That image says just about everything you would need to know, all that’s left is for me to give you a link to Typography Shop.

Natuarlly, I’d liketo see the print taking up a bit more of the ‘canvas’, but then the weights probably wouldn’t be right, would they?

Costiness=$39.99 Buy it at Typography Shop



Tees for a cause are usually something that I can get behind, and this is most certainly a cause I can get behind. Rosa Loves (who specialise in ‘tees for a cause’) have teamed up with the Pre-Emptive Love Coalition to help fund some life-saving surgery for a very ill 2-year old kid called Hussein in Iraq. Long story short, they need $4000, and if you buy the tee you help them reach that goal.

Costiness=$25 Buy it at Rosa Loves


To be completely honest, I prefer the t-shirt version of this design to the fleece sweatshirt, the print feels a bit small for a sweatshirt, which is a garment I usually associate with a larger print. Still, its pretty rare that I get to post a sweashirt (clearly they’ve fallen out of favour with a lot of designers), and the price is certainly very attractive.

Costiness=$24.99 ($29.99 after the end of the month) Buy it at the Typography Shop
