Alice For The iPad

“Just how,” people inquire, earnestly and with furrowed brows, “just how will the iPad make reading different?”

If you get an earnest, brow-furrowed inquiry simply thrust this in their phiz, it’s brilliant!

There’s a making of interview on the just-launched The Literary Platform.

The Book Cover Archive

If you like design and books and typefaces and imagery and reading then the Book Cover Archive is a great place to spend a little time. In the meantime here are a few of our favourites.

This is another one of those amazingly/annoyingly simple ideas that just work. Pin badge sized fridge magnets that act as a calendar. This won a graphic design award at the Kiev International Advertising Festival and should, hope fully be hitting the shops soonish.

Yorkshire Saucery. Trickery.

This new work for Yorkshire Saucery  by Shark! sums up everything I love about the smoke and mirrors you can create with packaging. The yellowing paper and hand written font says ‘home made’. The quote  and signature from the ‘chef’ tells you this was lovingly created by one man just for you, hell there’s even a photo of him, Jon’s his name. And the best bit, it’s exclusive to ASDA, one of the biggest supermarkets in the country. That Jon must be a busy man.
