Weekly Reader: Wednesday Links

On 13, Aug 2008 | No Comments | In Book Design, Inspiration, Letterpress/Printmaking | By Lorraine

I’m a little behind on posting inspiration, so I thought that I would try and make a regular habit of posting links in a weekly post rather than posting them willy-nilly as they come up in my feed-reader. It’s hard to narrow down all of the items I’ve noted lately, but figure this is a start…even if some of them have already made the blog rounds.

I’ll start with an aside: my friends and I have started a Fantasy Olympics to root for the underdogs this year. The goal was to pick a country to root for that isn’t already in the top 10 medal-winning countries. Since the Czech Republic was already taken, I went with Austria. As you can see on Gavin’s blog for the event, I’m already in the top third or so! “The hills are aliiiiive with the sound of medaaaaals!” (cheesy, I know…) Who are you rooting for?

Letterpress Love:
Oh, to own a press!

  • iLT has had a couple great posts about letterpress lately —Getting Started and also some good inspiration in his past couple of http://ilovetypography.com/2008/07/21/sunday-type-napkin-type/
  • Joie Studio posted a great series on Learning How to Letterpress (via Poppytalk)

German Love:
You know I have a soft spot for the Germans, so here are a few German/linguistics related items

And finally, Marion Bantjes + bringing out of print books back to market = amazing design. (via Coudal)
(seriously, I’m in love with her work and am just jealous I didn’t make it big first)

  1. Yay! Weekly links! I haven’t been so good with mine lately, but I think I have figured out a rhythm. We’ll see, huh? :)

    P.S. The Poppytalk link doesn’t work. Seems like there’s an extra at the end. Here’s what I got when I right clicked and copied the link location: http://poppytalk.blogspot.com/2008/08/panoramic-borders.html

    Odd..the link still works for me, Linden…thanks for posting the link in your comment. Maybe others can click there if mine doesn’t work?
