World first eBay auction


Renowned Melbourne design group Letterbox are intending to auction one of their creations on eBay.

Nothing new in that you’re thinking. But Letterbox are going to auction off a brand new font.

Known as Bisque, the seriously stylish typeface will be up for grabs on eBay from 17 April, in celebration of World Graphic Design Day.

The lucky bidder will gain exclusive international rights to the font for twelve months.

Letterbox claim this font auction will be a world first.

Whether that’s true or not, the event is guaranteed to generate plenty of publicity.
