As I sit here at the beginning of another hot and humid summer day, in a home without air conditioning that will feel like the interior of an oven in a few hours, I find relief from the less than welcome weather in Alicia Bock’s wonderfully evocative photographs.
Looking at Alicia’s creations makes me feel like I’m on a sandy beach, in a field full of fuzzy naturals, or beneath the shady boughs of a tree and far away from my stuffy abode. Photographs available at Alicia Bock Photography.

If this doesn’t make the typophiles lustily drool, then I don’t know what will. This beautiful letterpress poster was created by designer Cameron Moll to promote the First Annual Design Review for a team of 30 designers at the LDS Church. The poster features the Salt Lake Temple, created with characters from the Bickham Script Pro, Engravers MT, and Epic typeface families. Just beautiful!
