Letters and Liquor
These are lovely! (via Ben)
Letters and Liquor illustrates the history of lettering associated with cocktails. From the 1690s to the 1990s, I’ve selected 52 of the most important drinks in the cocktail canon and rendered their names in period-inspired design. I post a new drink each week with history, photos and recipes. Don’t want to miss a single cocktail? Click here for email updates.

That mysterious J
"in e-mail from Microsoft employees, you may find a stray J [...] The J started out its life as a smiley-face. The WingDings font puts a smiley face where the letter J goes. [...] As the message travels from machine to machine, the font formatting may get lost or mangled, resulting in the letter J appearing when a smiley face was intended." aha! mystery solved. Amazon is full of mysterious "J"s in emails, and now I know why
