Designers, and those who have an abnormal appreciation for typography, will now be able to display this love on their face for all the world to see thanks to the Helvetica and Garamond Eyeglasses. Similar to wearing one's heart on one's sleeve, this eyewear encourages people to be more open about their favorite fonts. Of course, the whole 'team' phenomena stemming from 'Twilights' love triangle may ensue.

Designed by the Japanese company Type, the Helvetica and Garamond Eyeglasses come in three versions each: light, regular and bold. Of course, these terms refer to the frame thickness. Although quite basic, the glasses do have tell-tale signs of the fonts they represent. While Helvetica blends into the face, Garamond stands out more.
