When soaps in the shape of video-game controllers swept the Internet a few months ago, I wanted to get my hands dirty just so I could make them clean. And now, this Typography Soap ($11) is making me want to get dirty all over again.
It completely exploits my type and font obsession, and the retro-looking 3-D letters have a charm that's not just geeky but utterly cool as well. Also cool? The Crushed Ice scent (incidentally, I have no idea how that smells). But here we have another niche product folks, and besides its brilliance as a gag gift for your favorite graphic designer, would you buy this soap for your home?
