This book cover tweeted by @Tom_Pch makes excellent use of type. Could a font shout "Cold War" at you more than this one does?

This invite received from @_treepig_ makes lovely use of typography and what could be better than a font cake?

This invite to the Your Design Cities exhibition tweeted by @lacey_Glave uses carefully set type in a way that suggests the cities that the exhibition is about.

Guerrilla Fonts 11

In a foreign font anything can look beautiful and the kanji script of Japan makes even the most mundane written word stand out. These train tickets from @thewaytobe reminded my of my own time in Japan and the wonderful writing I saw while I was there.

12. Foreign fonts - Bangladesh sign

Would this sports-related sign from Bangladesh tweeted by @ghostsigns look as good if you understood it?
