If you were in too much of a food coma over the Thanksgiving weekend and missed some of the typographic food FontShop posted for you, don’t worry — we’ve pinned it.

In our New & Noteworthy board, you can catch up to recent events and our newest fonts from the past week or so. You’ll find that registration for TYPO SF is up and running and that we have some swashtastic new fonts like Fan Script OT from Sudtipos.

We also continue to post more holiday fonts in our Festive Fonts board to help you get started on any holiday greetings you’re designing to send out to friends and family.

We’ve put together a menu of tasty typefaces on Pinterest for you to enjoy during the holidays. When you’re laying around in a food coma, you’ll be thanking us for giving you delicious treats to feast upon that won’t expand your stomach any more.

Our Savory Stems pinboard features a combination of mouth-watering pictures from fStop and delicious fonts available on FontShop. You might suddenly find yourself craving Grilled Chicken, Roast Beef, Canned Corn, or Cheese And Crackers — who knew you could do a little grocery shopping at FontShop? Take a look at Savory Stems for some kitchen inspiration as well as our other food-themed boards: SweetShop, Mugshot, and Edible Type!

Considering Thanksgiving is next week, it should be safe to say that the holidays are near. Some of you may have started shopping for gifts already, some of you may have even finished, but what about those who still like and need to send out holiday greetings via snail mail?

If you’re planning on creating your own holiday cards this season, we have a new board up that might inspire you. Our Festive Fonts board features fonts such as Braga or Maraschino Black that would be great for warming up your loved ones with a letter. Or perhaps you might want to give these fonts as gifts!

Our very own FontShopper, Theresa, recently came back from a trip to the UK — along the way, she snapped some typographic memories in London and Edinburgh. We have two new boards up this week — Type Travels: Hello, London! and Type Travels: Hello, Edinburgh! — that show some of the things she spotted during her trip.

Much like our own home here in San Francisco, seeing chalkboard lettering and handmade signage is not uncommon in both London and Edinburgh. Of her journey, Theresa notes:

“In London, I saw a lot of hand-painted signs and hand-lettering for shops, markets, and the Bloomsbury Festival. And I loved walking through Edinburgh’s Old Town which is filled with engravings that have lasted for hundreds of years. I really should have allotted more time for the British Library though — that place is a goldmine. I could have spent an entire day in there just looking at their stamp collection — too bad you can’t take photos, so you’ll just have to believe me and go yourself!”

If you’ve been thinking of traveling, maybe you should check out some of Theresa’s typographic pictures on Pinterest — that may sway you to fly overseas!

If you didn’t go out trick-or-treating on Halloween or you need a break from eating all the candy you did pick up, we have a sweet board up this week on Pinterest for you.

Our SweetShop pinboard will make you crave confectioneries with bright and sugary photos from fStop and fun fonts available on FontShop. From candy-coated letters like Candy Bits from Bitstream to Candy Script‘s mouth-watering swashes from Sudtipos, discover treats that won’t give you toothaches!

We have one new Pinterest board up this week to prepare you for next week’s festivities. Our Scary Faces board is filled with treats for those who want to trick-or-treat for type goodies on Halloween.

From images that scream bloody murder to fonts that will claw their way into your design instincts, we have a collection of spiky fonts available on FontShop and haunting images from fStop. If you’re not bothered by paranormal activity or snowy TV screens, you’ll find some spooky fonts you might like such as Static from GarageFonts or Alphabat Regular from Linotype. If you’re more likely to be watching movies like The Prophecy or The Exorcist next Wednesday night, you might be more interested in Exocet and Mason Serif from Emigre. Stop by our Pinterest page for some visual treats like FF Pitu Pro!

We have one new board up this week that focuses on typography from Japan! I recently came back from a week-long trip to Tokyo and didn’t forget to pay attention to the typography overseas.

Many of us are used to seeing an A through Z alphabet or any mix in between, so it was definitely a change to be in country where the language is portrayed in more than just the Latin alphabet. I hardly know how to speak or read most Japanese, but I can still appreciate the beautiful brush strokes and the sharp turns of the different Japanese alphabets (hiragana, katakana, and kanji). Of course, there’s also the romanization of Japanese (romaji), so I was able to snap a few shots of letterforms many of us are more accustomed to seeing. Visit our Type Travels: Hello, Tokyo! board to see what I saw during my stay in Japan!

Also, in honor of Snoop Dogg’s birthday tomorrow, don’t forget about our Nuthin’ But A G Thang pinboard and check out some Gs!

We have a few new Pinterest boards up this week including our X Marks The Spot board that we created especially for those who were plunderin’ for typographic treasures on Talk Like A Pirate Day.

On our Alphabetized board, we’ll be pinning interesting finds that showcase full alphabet designs ranging from posters, unique fonts, home decor, and character sets designed just for fun.

In line with our Typographic Trend this week, our Let’s Get Physical board contains images and items of type in the physical world as well as three-dimensional fonts including Buster OT from Elsner+Flake designed to appear like the letters are popping up from the ground and Ironmonger Three D OT from Font Bureau, sharply chiseled down to catch your eye.

To welcome the new season, we created one new board this week that will remind you of school days gone by. Our Back To School pinboard is a collection of images and fonts that are reminiscent of playgrounds, chalkboards, and learning how to connect your letters in writing with that thing called cursive. From fonts that remind you of elementary school like Lemonade Std Regular to fonts that hold memories of pep rallies and high school football games such as Yearbook Std Solid and Princetown Com.

Also, while our Sew Creative board isn’t exactly new this week, did you know September is National Sewing Month in the US? Get crafty with fonts like Stina Regular OT and the P22 Folk Art Set!

One, two, three and to the fo’ — lowercase serifs are at the door. We have one new board up that’ll have you begging for more.

The two-story lowercase “g” can be a fun glyph, so we’ve gathered a variety of lowercase serif “g” forms for you to browse. Ranging from the classic Baskerville Old Face to the modern feeling of Ambroise to a glyph with more attitude from FF Oneleigh Pro.

Our Nuthin’ But A G Thang board — it’s like this and like that and like this and uh, check it out!

Dive into our Pinterest boards this week with a recap of the Great American Typefaces we covered in our July 4th Newsletter and a collection of fun fonts on our water-themed board.

Last month, we listed out our Top 10 Great American Typefaces in our July 4th Newsletter — if you need to refresh your memory or are feeling patriotic, our Great American Faces board features the fonts from our Independence Day focus on American typography including Sweet Sans and Goudy’s Decorative Initials.

As the end of summer is nearing, it’s still important to stay hydrated! August is National Water Quality Month in the US, so we went fishing in our ocean of fonts for some water-themed faces from Linotype’s WaterFlag Regular and F2F Whale Tree Std Regular to Electric Typographer’s Finfont — you can find these gems in our Water You Waiting For board.

Quench your thirst for typography with these two new Pinterest boards!

As things kick off in London today, we’ll be pinning athletic design inspiration on our Fontlympics 2012 Pinterest board.

Next week, we’ll be hosting the Fontlympic Decathlon on our blog. The five typefaces that will be competing against each other in various events next week will be showcased not only on the blog, but the Fontlympics Pinterest board as well — you won’t want to miss out on which face will be crowned the best all-around typeface!

Besides the Fontlympics, we couldn’t contain our excitement for the release of the Dark Knight trilogy finale last week and took a look into the use of typography in the bat years gone by.

From the onomatopoeia discussed on the FontFeed a couple months ago to the comical lettering of Adam West days, Batman has flown through sharply edged letters to shiny type to serifs and finally down to simple sans for the Dark Knight trilogy. Check out the typographic evolution of Batman beginning with movie posters from the 1940s on our Holy Typography Batman! Pinterest board.

And for the coffee-holics anonymous out there, we have a Pinterest board just for you:

On our new Mugshot board, you’ll find a selection of coffee-themed fonts and matching images from fStop. Every time you feel like you’re having a case of the Mondays, head on over to our Pinterest to find type samples and images that will make you feel better.
