Naturally, his craft is stunning, but I just love this typography set! I can imagine creating a display out of them, attaching them all to the wall in a row, spaced just a little bit apart, perhaps above a row of hangers, or a shelf. So cute!

I am totally crazy over miniatures, here are a few of my favorites:

be sure to check out his 'my future wife' page.

Her whole gallery is amazing, careful because you (or at least i) can spend hours there.

lastly her miniature 3d city drawings are great, pictures really don't do them justice.

Slinkachu! ( His little people project is ultra cool - I love the idea that if I was walking around London, I might see one of them! Very unlikely, I know, but the possibility is there!

Stuff like this is amazing to me - not just the fact that the artist could do this, but the dedication that must have gone into doing this - the time, the precision. I wonder how many tries each letter took before it was done this perfectly?

Gereon Inger has a couple of miniature projects, often type/lettering related: (German only).
