Kitsune Noir have posted up some scans of the renowned type foundry House Industries look book that showcases many of their typefaces. I’ve been a fan of House for ages, particularly their fashion label House 33, which used to have a lavishly appointed shop around the corner from where I used to work in Soho. Check the pictures out here and check House’s site here.
