The typography revolution is upon us, and we’re happy to carry its flag. So far, we’ve brought you typography music videos and posters, and T-shirts. But what about those moments when you want to express your love for fonts in a more delicate way — say, with jewelry. If that sounds appealing to you, we’re sure you’ll enjoy this edition of Design Porn, our regular roundup of items to add to your existential shopping list. And guess what? This time, we’re featuring a lot of items that you (and we!) can actually afford to buy. Let us know what you’re snapping up in the comments.
