Why aren't all study guides this beautiful?

Ligature, Loop & Stem Poster
Scott Boms, Grant Hutchinson and Luke Dorny
Lunar Caustic Press: Neil Wismayer

I came across this poster on FPO immediately after I barely survived that absolutely brutal type test. FPO is yet another brain child of Armin Vit and Bryony Gomez-Palacio. "FPO is a blog dedicated to both the visual stimulus and the detailing of the development and production of printed matter..."

I'm finding FPO helpful in seeing the technical details behind producing printed matter. The cost, timing and many finishing choices are sometimes a mystery. It's nice to read about designer's thought processes, technical steps and various setbacks throughout a project.

And I just like looking at pretty stuff.
