Oslo resident and designer Veronica Falsen Hiis settled down in a cozy snow drift to sculpt this great collection of icy type. The clarity of the letterforms is truly impressive despite the frozen medium. See also her type made from the edges of books. (via fastco)
A great typography experiment by Thom Isom as part of his last university project at De Montfort University, Leicester.
Curve-stitch typography created for my final major university project entitled Ludd in April 2010. A range of installations and experiments based around the materials and techniques of arts and crafts. The typeface has been created in both digital and crafted formats with each letter nailed and threaded through 26 separate A4 boards.

Effendy’s piece makes you mull over the role of language and how—especially, in today’s world of information overload—language has the power to encourage progress as well as impede it.
