Gorgeous Puffin in Bloom editions illustrated by Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Company! Beautiful artwork on those endpapers and cover, plus special bonus materials at the end of each book. Including, of course, a recipe for raspberry cordial.

We’re giving away a complete set of four to one lucky person who completes our MG/YA classics challenge this year!

Photographs by The Midnight Garden.

The grid is everything

“The grid is an integral part of book design. It’s not something that you see. It’s just like underwear: you wear it, but it’s not to be exposed. The grid is the underwear of the book.” - Massimo Vignelli

In 1990 Rizzoli published a book about Vignelli Associates, designed by Massimo Vignelli, called design: Vignelli. We recently discovered many materials in the archives showing the design process for the “red book.” What better place to start than with the grid?

Stay tuned over the next few weeks as we show off more of the design process work from this book. And rumor has it there is a forthcoming volume covering the years since 1990.

I started a new Tumblr to collect my watercolors and try to keep me going. Found out about Urban Sketching recently where people draw on location. Pretty cool stuff that I’d love to be better at doing.

Great new web app with a lot of potential uses. Like the idea of moodboards and pinterest-y uses brought locally to Dropbox which is faster to hunt through for me. Tip: I used Fluid on my mac to make it a Single-Site Browser app.
Octobox lets you collect information from anywhere and store it in a single place. It makes it incredibly easy to keep images, gifs, text notes, webpage clippings, links and more.

Balloons of Bhutan is a portrait of happiness in the last Himalayan kingdom. I love this. Really would like to learn how to do something more on the arts side of the creative field.

Been thinking about tattoos a lot lately, but not sure I’ll ever be able to sit on a theme, style, idea, etc etc.
