Considering the visual assault that was the cruise boat (you know I secretly love it, don't you?) it was refreshing to spend a few days either side in the country that effortlessly oozes stlye, Italy.
One of the things I especially love about Italian design is that they really know how to work a good font. Everywhere you look there's some delicious typography to admire - on coffee cups, on store fronts, even on the napkins.
So, here's a little Italian font love for you - enjoy!
(Did you spot the 'cravattificio'? It actually translates as 'tie factory', but I like to think of it as a cravat emporium, a kind of 'cravats r us' if you will. Wonderful!)
