I keep finding links to a new resource called LetterCult. They are definitely doing some PR. They're mission statement: LetterCult is our attempt to highlight artists & designers doing remarkable work with Custom Letters. This group includes type designers, letterers, sign painters, graffiti artists, stone carvers, calligraphers, poster artists, and graphic designers. Just people. Who make letters.

I’m proud to announce my new business – Miller Cormier!
I have teamed with fellow designer and close friend, Sara Cormier, to form the design partnership Miller Cormier. Together we can do most any kind of design work you might need: brand identity, wedding invitations, promotions, advertising, websites, banner ads and more. This isn't totally self-promotion… our site integrates quite a bit of hand lettering, my hand writing to be exact. I hope you will visit us: www.millercormier.com
I came across a new blog last week, Kids and Cocktails, where Kate posts about a lot of things, but she has a little bit of a sweet spot for calligraphy. When you've got some time, run over to Kids and Cocktails and check out all of her calligraphy posts.

I'm sure these Carter Kustera silhouettes have made the blog rounds long ago… but I thought they were worth mentioning again because of the hand scribbled descriptions of the person. Funny. Information for ordering is available on Jonathan Adler site.
The Martha Stewart Living September 2008 issue features quite a bit of stenciled lettering, not just as projects to do, but on the cover and in the page layouts. I couldn't find a better image than this one, hopefully you can flip through it next time you're waiting in the grocery check out line.

I found a post about Lizzie Fortunato Jewels newest collection yesterday on fly as well. I love finding random lost personal items on the street… missing earrings, charms, watches, etc… and these necklaces remind me of those. And they're unique enough that somoene wouldn't have one just like it. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the most obvious thing - they use hand-lettering, or at least letters that seem that way.
Oh, man I found some good stuff yesterday, starting with Emily Eibel's stitched illustrations. Emily uses a mish-mosh of embroidery techniques and illustration skills to come up with her stitched illustrations. This is probably my favorite find lately, because I've recently taken up an interest in blackwork.
