Our good friend Pip from Meet Me at Mikes passed on this brilliant link to Ed Nacional's experiments in tie-pography. This from his site: "Display typeface constructed from a personal tie collection. A large amount of the collection was acquired from my dad, the rest bought at flea markets, thrift stores with a few brand new purchases sprinkled throughout. I hope to soon extend this project to add alternates, numbers and ligatures as the collection grows. " link Thanks Pip!
