Misprint Type--This Site Rocks!

I know this site has blogged about for months but I wanted to make sure our readers were aware of it. I love the collage work of Eduardo Recife, an artist who was born in 1980, Belo Horizonte (MG) Brazil. He started his own site project back in 1998, titled Misprinted Type. The site consisted in basically showcasing his experimental typefaces and artwork. Things got bigger and in 2003, Recife launched the 2nd version of Misprinted Type and for that he won recognition in lots of magazines, books and websites.

There is so much fun stuff on this site--collage, fonts, drawings, photos... you'll get deliriously lost! Plus there is lots of fab free fonts (say that 3 times really fast) that you can download. Go to his link on projects and watch Invisible--a scrolling poem with music--I just love it!

Here's a couple of pieces that are on his commercial site that were commissioned by HBO's Assume the Position.
