Text on a Curve

Nick Sherman’s flickr group called Text on a Curve is just neat as hell. And this example from Patricia is especially beautiful; The Fan Safety Matches.

I’ve never set text on a curve because getting it right is so damn hard, so I also loved the description of all the different ways to set text like this in the Group Description section; rotate, arch, fan, and distort.

I’m sure I’ll come back to this diagram at some point soon.
