Before reading this let me remind all of us that we truly are living in the future.

This project is so wacky that my brain hurts just thinking about how this is made possible!
Netherlands Institute of Architecture has teamed up with the Dutch postal service to create a set of stamps that, when held up in front of your webcam, display 3D models of five unbuilt works by Dutch architecture offices. Watch a promo video of the project in action after the jump!
B/D Intern Alumni and all around cool gal Alexis Kaneshiro has curated a great exhibition at Gallery Nucleus celebrating the almighty hand drawn typography. Long before we had computers, adobe software, and other mass printing services we used our own two hands to create beautiful typography for everything from signs to packaging for products. The show opens May 14th until June 6th so head on over to the gallery, give Alexis a high five and check out some killer experimental type.
