I'm sure she is already somewhere in this blog, but if you haven't heard of her, you gotta check her out. Her name is Marian Bantjes. She's a typographer, designer, writer and illustrator, and she is known for her obsessive hand work, her detailed precise vector art, as well as her crazy patterns and ornament. I personally find her fascinating, and I hope you do too.
Her book! (that entire page is actually a typeface!)
