Istanbul / The Hand-Cut Fonts of Fener
While I was exploring my neighbourhood I noticed that some shops had their names displayed in a particular font. Because I have only seen this type of lettering in Fener, I have named it the Fener Font. At first I thought that the font was painted on the window but when I touched it I realised that is was a hand cut laminate that has a sandpaper texture. I documented the ones I found so that I could share them with you. 😊
A great discovery and only through keen observation—I'll let a few of my designer friends know; they'll be sure to be interested!
Thank you James! These kinds of little details are important to me and I would be happy to know that they’ve inspired someone else. 😊 Wishing you a lovely day.
Very cool post!! I love how you collected them to be able to share them as a theme here!
Are the letters pasted on the outside or the inside of the window?? I have a similar obsession with the letters in Italy: https://cultivatingjoy.eu/2018/01/15/spotting-details-in-the-streets-of-rome/
Look forward to reading your post! Thanks for sharing 😊
