It is no secret I am an enthusiastic cheerleader of New Zealand type distributor thedesignersfoundry. The TDF team are doing really awesome things and their latest project is no exception.

To mark the release of FUNCTION typeface by Anthony Burrill we have crafted a special woodblock alphabet. Each woodblock is an edition of one, a true collectors item.

Due to the very limited nature, woodblocks are to be sold individually to the highest bidder via silent auction with a percentage of the profits being donated bowel cancer research.

Each block is 15cm (5.9 inch) in height and varying widths depending on the letter, they are hand made by Thomas Mayo of London. The woodblocks are wrapped in organic tissue paper and packed in a foam lined luxury kraft box with red foil detailing.

Bid fast (and give generously) - the auction ends in 12 days!
