Broken type

Broken type. After ordering a bunch of letters from the manufaturers, the fools forgot to pack them properly to they travelled half way around the world unprotected. This was the result. It broke my heart....

....even broken typ is still beautiful!

    Quite a beautiful photo though!
    What are your letters made of and how big are they? Is there some reason you don't sell to U.S. customers?

    I do sell to US customers, don't know why you believe I don't : ( Maybe I need to make clearer in the vialetter website?

    They are a hardfoam core type plastic,its a strong material but also quite brittle if not packaged properly.

    This photo is one of a series I took with a guy called Petri. I was thinking of turning them into posters for crazy type people like us :)

    Looks as though you fixed the text on your site to include North America. Thanks!
