Physical letterforms... just delicious. We've spotted a spate of new ones available to buy around town lately. The ones above are from the newly opened Anthropologie store on Regent St. (They only have a limited UK website so far, but you can check out their full range on the USA site.) The zinc letters come in two sizes, the 8" set above, and a huge set that stand 25" tall - as with the ampersand below.
Just round the corner from there, at Do Shop (on Beak Street), we saw these set of Metalvetica letters from Seletti, which each stand around 35cm high, and as with the Anthropologie set have holes in the back for hanging on walls. They're weighted too, so will sit happily on a shelf.
And at the same store, you can also pick up ceramic Clarendon letterforms in black or white, also from Seletti, which stand about 25cm tall.
