Round Numbers

We’re pretty sure this well-worn table doesn’t need protection from coasters, but who can blame anyone for wanting to show off these letterpress numbers by Atlanta’s Red Bird Ink print shop? Printed from antique wood type, each number is hand set and hand printed onto thick card stock in the largest possible font size for a 3.5″ diameter—creating both a graphically compelling tabletop, and a rudimentary method of keep track of which glass belongs to whom. Bonus: we’re willing to bet that this vintage typeface will look even better marred by a few circles and splashes.
