  1. Oh. That’s absolutely delicious. Thanks John!

    I’ll have to make my own — at some point. :)

  2. Hamish
    Pleased you like them. I’ll post some more when I get time. Hoping to do some in lots of different styles, even grunge. Would love to see your wallpapers. In fact, I really like the style of that image you made for the Scrabble pieces (was it you?), with perhaps part of the “i love typography” spelled out with those Scrabble letters.

  3. Denis

    Wow, that’s really neat, I think I’m going to put the first one on my desktop right now !

  4. Nice wallpapers! The yellow and black version is sexy! and the widget is now on my dashboard :)
    Good Stuff!

  5. Kari Pätilä

    Firenze meets the retro brush.

    You know, it wasn’t that long ago that I could just mind my business and not pay attention to type, patterns or combinations of color. Well, live and learn.

  6. I will get around to making some Johno, have been a little busy with the VISA prep and immigration.

    I just read that you want something a little grungey! I’m totally on it ;)

  7. Wow, sometime next week, I must have a go!

  8. ben17UK

    that bear one is really neat!

  9. Cody & Carly
    Can’t wait to see them.

    ben17UK
    Yes, it is. In fact FontShop do a nice one every month. Best thing to do is subscribe to the FontFeed. I guess they’ll post the December one soon.

  10. good site good works

  11. Maybe post 2560x1600 versions of some of these? I have 30”ers that it’d be nice to display these on.

  12. Elliottcable
    Is there one in particular that you’d like to see at that size?

  13. Amando

    How does one submit a wallpaper???

  14. Amando
    Thanks for visiting. Sorry, but the form to submit your wallpapers disappeared for a while. I’ve fixed it now.

  15. Armando

    Thanks Johno!

  16. CyborgSam

    Zachary’s desktops are wonderful, the tray of old type is my favorite. The wear and tear and rust makes the antique look perfect. I’d love to see more trays with different typefaces.

  17. zachary

    CyborgSam, I’m glad you like them. I would also like to see some different typefaces, but I don’t have any others at the moment. I plan to get more in the future or go over to a local letterpress and see what I can do.

  18. zachary
    They’ve proven to be incredibly popular. Exciting to think that there might be more. Thanks again.

  19. I just wanted to say that I changed my desktop from the 2nd one in the left column (by Zachary), after many weeks of admiration, to the bottom one of the right column (by Antonio). And I love it!!! It’s so beautifully textured! I would love to see more by this person. Also I love that it is colorful without being too bright.

    Those are my two cents, for now.

  20. Leah
    I’ve used most of them now. Right now I’m using the one at the top, righ-hand-side. The one your using is nice, and Antonio has some more like it on his own web site.

  21. Awesome desktops. Adding to mine and my Tumblr now.

  22. Is there any interest in (and permission for) using these images on a t-shirt?

    Cafepress makes it easy, and I was curious.

  23. Dennis

    Too bad that the font used for the “Helvetica” wallpaper (2nd row, 2nd column) isn’t Helvetica (http://www.ms-studio.com/articlesarialsid.html) … ;-)

  24. I love….the whole site.

  25. michael

    @Dennis

    Uh… Yeah it is.

  52. Very nice wallpapers.

    I’m dowloading all!!!!

  53. Nice list. I like the “I love typography” in red. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi,

    I am a videographer and graphic artist. I own a small video production company in the U.S. I have a passion for video, graphics, animation and special effects, but have always felt that fonts, choosing fonts and understanding fonts, have been a weakness in my work. I’ve actually said, “fonts are another universe!”

    I’ve wanted to have a deeper understanding of what font to use for what project. I would stay within a “safe zone” and it has worked fairly well: i.e. grunge for a beer commercial etc.

    I stumbled on your site today (veer) and could not be more excited. The way you dissect every aspect of any given font is enlightening, refreshing and I am truly grateful that I now have a place to go to learn. I hope some of your passion rubs off on me and my work.

    I am amazed at how highly specialized and targeted each of us can be. You have a gift. Thank you for sharing your interest and passion for fonts.

    M. Lawrence

  55. Very useful information and very nice wallpaper. Thank you for sharing.

  56. Loved this typography, I’m doing a course in London on typography and this site has helped me greatly. It is a great complement to studies.

    Thank you.

  57. Thank you, beatiful font and layout

  58. Dear artist,

    Really love the Four Seasons font.
