best of: fonts in homes

by Amy Azzarito

One of my favorite things about looking through the sneak peek archives is spotting similarities in some very different homes, such as books, gallery walls and type! Whether three-dimensional letters or prints with a typographical emphasis, there are a lot of fonts in sneak peeks! In honor of today’s font theme, I picked 25 of my absolute favorites. I hope you enjoy them! — Amy A.
