Custom Cast Nes Tiles finally available

After spending a lot of time making the mold and casting several  nes 8 bit tiles Ive finally decided to put them out there for sale.  These are hand made by me and aren't available anywhere else, each one is a near perfect exact replica of an actual nintendo game, just like the ones most of us grew up playing in the 80's.
 If interested they can be purchased here NINTENDO orginal 8bit tiles.  or click the link to the right of this page.  They come shipped blank with clear coat to protect the tile, but you can paint it how ever you like.  Thanks for checking it out, to see more pics of the painted Nintendo game nes tiles click below.

The Low down on the font seen from Up to Down town. NYC Subway font info....

Pretty good article explaining how the font we see when using trains above & below ground in New York everyday has evolved over time into what we commonly see while riding the subway today.  Didn't know there wasn't  a uniform font until 1989, read more of the story after the break know your history !      Great article on the NYC train font from nytimes
