Edible Type Friday on Feb 14th To celebrate Type Tasting’s first birthday you’re invited to share your love of typography by taking edible type to work. Please photograph it before (or while) it’s being eaten.
Tweet your photos to @TypeTasting with #ILoveType Or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll blog the photos next week.
It would also be great to see any ‘making of’ photos if you bake or create the type yourself. Cake? Jelly? Sweets from the local sweetshop? …What would a font taste like?
At Type Tasting I’ve been posing the question “what would type taste like?” I’ve put together a tasting pack to kickstart the discussion featuring Impact as dark chocolate laced with chilli, Helvetica as plain biscuits and Comic Sans as candy melts with popping candy.
The tasting pack comes complete with a chocolate box style description sheet introducing each typeface along with the suggested flavours. What do you think? What would your favourite typefaces taste like? Details of my suggestions with recipes are below…
