The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over the Lazy Dog

As you may recall, last year I celebrated my birthday with a typography themed party. It was a huge hit and people really got into it from an appearance by the “serif sheriff” to two of my friends who dressed up like “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” [the typographic panagram – a sentence that uses every letter in the alphabet – used by designers to check out fonts]. So I was so pleased to see that I’m not the only one who uses typography to celebrate their birthday. To celebrate their 6th birthday, The Lazy Dog gallery is currently hosting their own print show based on the theme “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” featuring some extremely talented designers treating the subject in really smart and creative ways. Don’t miss the show, which continues from now until November 25th at their gallery space at 2 passage Thiere, 11eme arrondisement : Paris. Their bookstore just around the corner – 25 rue de Charonne – also happens to be a designer’s paradise. {via gogoparis}
