Illustrative Tamil type and lettering

Oh my goodness! I recommend everyone visit, an online Tamil bookstore, and check out the amazing book cover scans! I could click for days! So many great display fonts and lettering! And then buy something, too ;) I'm sure I'll post many more from this site. Pure bliss!

Also, a quick Hindi Rinny Hooray to our pal, Mr. Dan Reynolds for his recent Type Director's Club "Certificate of Typographic Excellence in Type Design" for Malabar, the Latin component of Martel, his University of Reading design that contains a Devanagari character set.

And, those of you in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, be sure to stop by the Walker Art Center next Tuesday, March 10th at 7pm for what is sure to be a great typography lecture hosted by Eric Olson and Nicole Dotin of Process Type Foundry.

I'm not sure if is related to this site, but I'm guessing that it is. That's the site where I got my copy of Gumnaam, of which you see one of the best dance scenes ever from this film featured in the Ghostworld movie.

I'm sure it's quite possible! :)

Sometimes I wonder if Indian readers of this blog think I'm nuts for getting so excited about tiny, old scans of paperbacks -- but I really love them and am so grateful for sites like these! Because actual physical resources are SO limited here in Minneapolis!

Anyway, YEAH! Love that song!
Jaan pehechaan ho! Jeena Aasaan ho!

Thank the lord for youtube as well!
