As a lover of words, I am going to begin posting a “visual representation” of some of my favorite quotes. Bare with me as my Photoshop skills are rather amateur. But, I hope the words can speak for themselves! The first being by one of my all-time favorite authors Chuck Palahniuk. This quote is from the book Invisible Monsters which I highly suggest you read if you haven’t already.
This Alphabet dinnerware from Fishs Eddy is simply beautiful.
Better yet, it appears to be on sale right now- half off even!
I am very, very tempted to buy myself the “E” and the “A” mugs.
My birthday is next week, after all. We could call it an early birthday present!
It’s finals week for me which is why I have been virtually non-existent. Once Friday comes, I will have an entire week to catch up & de-stress! In the meantime, here’s a handful of inspiring links to look at:
The Mesmerizing Curves of Ampersands – If you don’t already know, I love ampersands! This is a lovely collection of some of the loveliest ampersands. Definitely worth a look-see.
Beautiful set of photographs from Vanity Fair – I came across these on PhotoDecadent. So fun & whimsical & makes my heart smile!
Beklina: A delightful green botique -I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with their clothing.
“When Spring is Still a Dream” photograph by StevensonMarie – I need more of this in my life right now. I can’t wait for spring!
Hope that will tide you over for a bit! Enjoy!
I have loved Frank Chimero‘s illustrations for a while now. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered he has a shop with very reasonably priced posters ($20!) of his work. There are so many lovely posters to choose from! You should most definitely check them all out if you haven’t already. He knows what’s up.
I have a brand new banner & (somewhat) new layout for the blog. The banner was made by a good friend of mine. He’s quite good, don’t you think? It fits my personality quite well. Besides, who doesn’t love clouds? I mean, c’mon. They’re the essence of cute.
So, before I call it a night, I simply had to share this brilliant poster by graphic designer Eivind Søreng Molvær. Really, I don’t think any explanation is necessary. You know how I love to italicize for emphasis. If you’re interested, he’s selling them in a signed limited edition of 100 right here for £35.
If you love minimalism & white space, you will most assuredly enjoy the installation pieces by Igor Eskinja. I am typically not a lover of abstract pieces, but I find that his work is extremely aesthetically pleasing & realistic enough for me to be able to decipher some sense of meaning & form.
Also, according to designboom, his installations are typically thrown out after the show is over. I have no idea if this is typical for an installation such as this. But, in a throw-away culture such as ours today, it’s interesting to see that it is creeping into the artistic realm as well.
I love the idea of this font. Each letter is made out of a single line. Very clever!
