Type Glasses

We’re unashamedly fans of typography here at Coolector HQ and there’s nothing we like more than a good font (well, there are plenty of things we like more but we’re definitely partial to a Sans Serif and its cohorts). Well, bearing this in mind, you won’t be surprised to hear that we’ve got our eye (clever stuff) on these spectacular spectacles that go by the name of Type Glasses.

These superb looking glasses are the work of Japanese brand Type who have witnessed the beauty of the world’s different fonts and incorporated the curvatures and sweeping shapes of these fonts into their striking glasses. Lamentably (or, perhaps, positively) we have impeccable eyesight here at Coolector HQ and aren’t in requirement of a pair of glasses but you can rest assured that when are vision heads south, these brilliant Type Glasses will be our first port of call.

We’ve seldom seen are pair of glasses as painfully cool and unusual as this supremely spiffing pair and we’re definite fans of their typeface undercurrent. For anyone similarly enamoured with the artistry of fonts, there can be no better pair of glasses for those with failing vision.
