Though not a new idea, sisters-gone-designers can often make the best of teams (Sienna and Savannah Miller of Twenty8Twelve, The Olsens, Laura and Kate Mulleavy of Rodarte, the list goes on…) So if you're looking for a bit of whimsy brought to you by another sister duo, look no further.

Gratuitous Type / No. 2 is a snazzy, zine-like "pamphlet of typographic smut" that'll make designerds a little weak in the knees. It's the brainchild of Brooklyn-based graphic designer/art director Elana Schlenker and is filled with great work and interviews from creatives who love letters, including calligrapher Kathryn Murray and graphic designer Astrid Stavro.
