Couldn’t help but be taken away with Dorisse’s jewelry collection for Paper Statement. Using a selection of book pages, corrugated board, or paper discs, Dorisse has managed to create an eclectic and elegant creation of accessories that are a book lovers dream! I’d take her version of “shades of grey” any given day. 🙂
Saw this great book by Jim Merrell called, Type Matters!. Both a typographer and designer since 1982, Merrell decided to write this book in efforts to help designers with further understanding typography. Not only is the content useful and easy to understand, but his use of type design in each layout is smart and provocative. (via Typetoken)
You’re getting a second post today, which is shocking, considering how terrible I’m feeling today after an evening of catching up with old friends and having WAY TOO MUCH FUN! I came across this book and thought, not only is it appropriate to how I feel, but also, surprisingly has good type design. I thought it would be nice to share it for the design component, but also…perhaps can be helpful to a few of you as we start to approach the summer. This may be one of those books worth having on your shelf. You probably thank me later. (click here to buy)
Sara Fanelli has published a beautiful interactive, die-cut children’s book called “The Onion’s Great Escape.” Exploring simple questions that children often ask, Fanelli has designed this book to further explore fun questions like, “If you think of an elephant, how big is your thought?” Pushing boundaries of philosophic questions for children, Fanelli has managed to do it all in a fun and exciting way.

I’m a visual person, and with that, unfortunately comes a HUGE downfall – I don’t pay enough attention to grammar. In fact, I have to admit, it’s something I debate if I should even bother, wondering if people take the time to read today.
That being said, I’ve decided it’s a New Year and with that, my annual list of New Year’s resolutions! On the list is : IMPROVE YOUR GRAMMAR.
So, I thought just in case there is anyone out there on the same mission as me OR simply looking to get a quick refresher, here are my 2 recommendations where you can’t go wrong.
Hella Jongerius, mastermind in mixed media & arts, has designed a collection of 300 colored vases (Series 3) that are now being displayed at Moss in NYC until January 15, 2012. What makes me more excited about this project are the handmade books that accompany the vases: Hella Jongerius: Misfit, which is now available in the hardcover version.
