I came across Book Cover Archive: An Archive of Book Cover Designs and Designers. It’s in a ‘steady beta’ format, but it’s already an awesome source of design inspiration with a stellar blog that I’ve bookmarked too. (Image Source)

August 12, 2012 by

Connecticut artist, Bryan Nash Gill, captures the life of a tree by making large scale relief prints of the cross sections of fallen or dead trees in his neighborhood. The book “Woodcut” featuring his work will be joining my book collection soon.  His prints are going on my dream wishlist. (Image Source)

Archie Grand


July 23, 2012 by

From notebooks to condoms, Archie Grand is simple in design, but offer workshops filled with great imagination. Seems like a good place to unleash if you’re afraid of the blank page. Their jumbo sketchbooks have titles like “guests I met and liked” and  “faux pas I made and liked”. One of each please. (Image Source)
