Field guide to typographic moustaches

Posted to Data Art  |  Nathan Yau

Sure, why not, let’s make it a hairy Friday. From Tor Weeks: a series of moustaches styled by their typographic counterpart, aka typestaches. The big and bold typefaces like Federal and Wide Latin get thick and burly moustaches, while the more delicate typefaces, get thin and curvy.

If only facial hair were as easy to select as fonts. I’d get myself a 24pt Mr. Century Ultra.
