Fifty Classic Choices

As a commemoration of their half decade celebration, Penguin Modern Classic recently produced 50 printed mini modern classics, all in modern grey covers with black and white fonts. I think these series will make a handsome gift for just about anyone.. Classic and Small are definitely my fave combinations!

Typographic Sculptures

I found an artwork that perfectly combines my two greatest passion: sculpture and literature in an art form called Typographic Sculpture. Taking inspiration from old signage letters, vintage letterpress printing type, the artist, June Corley, who is also an art director and graphic designer, cleverly crafted these animated sculptures. What I like even more is that these sculptures have friendly faces that warm your heart. View more of her work here

You are not a gadget

You Are Not a GadgetYou Are Not a Gadget by Jaron Lanier

Love the title… a great reminder of why we should be able to detach ourselves from technologies once in a while. Just like a book which can be worn out, dusty or even torn, humanity is a fragile soul that can’t be replace by any man-mad machine.
