The Marriage of Something I Love and Something I Don’t Really Understand.

The Marriage of Something I Love and Something I Don’t Really Understand.

Typography!  I love it.  I have always loved it, and that is not hyperbole.  I remember doodling letters from a very early age.  I am intrigued by the forced design recognition of typography.   You literally cannot, not notice the design, if you want to read what you are looking at anyway.  I am also fascinated that, even with lifetimes of use, typography continues to make the ordinary, extraordinary.  I find it magical.

Chess!  I don’t understand it.  I have never understood it.  I remember as a child being fascinated by the ornate kings, queens, and horse-heads of my grandfather chess set.  I also remember being amazed that anything could be turned into a chess set; civil war figures, Hello Kitty, even the Simpsons.  I would get in such trouble when my mother found my Grandfather’s knights flying around in the Millennium Falcon.   Yes, I will freely admit I see chess much like I did back then, another alien in the Star Wars universes.

That is why I wanted to share this limited addition type(chess)set from hat-trick in London.

Modern Chess set

Simple and clean, a real statement.

While I will never play a game, at least not well, these clean, acrylic pieces will look fantastic as art  in my home.  Two eternal foes, ever battle ready and looking fantastic.
