Graphic artist and print-maker Anthony Burrill has launched a stunning new resource for creatives – an open-source collection featuring snippets of typography found by Burrill over the years. The website archive, named XYZ, is like a totally stripped-back Pinterest, but one that's achingly well designed and deliciously immersive. 

XYZ showcases 'found' typography, ranging from cut outs from the Yellow Pages to those little tickets you used to get from the deli counter, and each one has a tactile, analogue feel. These 500 pieces of everyday design have inspired Burrill's own design work and, better yet, each piece is individually downloadable for creatives to use as they wish – with zero copyright restrictions (a bit like our list of free fonts.)
