Hand drawn Typography

I am a big fan of hand drawn typography. Breaking up the strict structure of a real font by (re-)drawing it just adds some live to text. About two weeks ago I found this cover design of the Sunday Magazine. It is designed by a company called Disturbance, which also did the layout of the magazine, which I really like. Anyways, the font on the cover inspired me to a blog about typography.
