Whilst a larger, wall mounted version of Sebastian Wrong’s Font Clock is well know to us (not that it ever featured here on EP for some reason) this smaller, desktop Font Clock is new to us and, whilst we have indicated in the title that this particular clock could (possibly) be the ideal time telling machine for the typographists were not sure whether this distinctive clock’s liberal use of font would be something that would be warmly welcomed or frowned upon. Either ways, we like it – if only because its different.
Sebastian Wrong’s Font Clock (Small) is a flip style clock utilising a total of 12 differing fonts allowing for ‘an ever changing display’ though, being a clock this tends to be par for the course unless, for some reason, time was to suddenly stand still or the batteries were to run out – but we’ll quibble not.
This desktop version of the Font Clock measures in at 11.5″ x 4.3″ x 5.5″ and, just in case you happen to be a typographist, the 12 fonts used are Bauer Bodoni, English Script, American Text, Agincourt, Gill Sans, Franklin Gothic, Reporter, Brush Script, Helvetica Neue, Shatter, Untitled, and Neon Kraus (what no Times Roman?).
Sebastian Wrong’s Desktop Font Clock retails for a reassuringly expensive $435.
