Welcome to February’s Love! Roundup. These are some favorite things I’ve discovered online over the past month, from the Love! folder I keep on my Mac’s desktop:
1. Ampersandwich Tee
For Typophiles and those who just can’t get enough of ampersands. Who doesn’t want an Ampersandwich?!
2. Bulb Lantern
A fabulous twist on traditional paper lanterns.
3. Goodnight Bush
Hilarious parody of the classic children’s book Goodnight Moon, making fun of the Bush Presidency.
4. Type: A Visual History of Typefaces and Graphic Styles, Vols. 1 & 2
Another item for typophiles, like myself: “A connoisseur’s overview of typeface design, exploring the most elegant fonts from the history of publishing.”
5. I Am Not A Paper Cup
Simple and useful, a wonderful alternative to disposable beverage cups.
6. Come In/Go Away Doormat
Brilliant typeplay allows this single mat to either welcome or cast away visitors.
7. Rapidograph Pens
For the old-school designer and everyone who values the perfect pen for precise drawing. A new set has been on my Want list for some time now!
8. Sweet Treats — A Typographical Cookbook
So I think you get that I love typography. I just can’t get enough. Also? I love to bake. And I know there are plenty of you out there who are just like me. This cookbook satisfies these two great loves in one elegant package.
Another great way to cut back on disposable cups and bottles! And this one is geared specifically toward those of us who are not only environmentally concerned, but who are also addicted to Twitter.
10. PS Magnet Kit
Need I say more? These are soon to be all over my refrigerator.
That wraps up this Love! Roundup. I empty my Love! folder monthly, so check back at the end of March when I post next month’s roundup to see more fun items. If you have a product you’d like me to take a look at and possibly feature, you can send links to ayeager [at] hyperfocusnyc.com.
