Marian Bantjes - Love Stories

by Marian Bantjes
Marian Bantjes has just published a set of fantastic personal work in the latest Monograph (available to Creative Review subscribers only). Luckily the Creative Review blog also has a bit of information about it, and you can see lovely big images of all the work on Marian's website. Each of the beautiful pieces is the story of someone she loves, and you really get a sense of the people behind these.

American Craft Magazine

American Craft
Another interesting guest post on design*sponge about American Craft's move towards more hands-on typography. Some lovely images. I'm going to try and hunt a copy of this down.

More lovely stuff. I recommend a good look through his Flickr, it's all fantastic.

Chicago Type

Chicago Type
In a refreshing change in tone, there's an interesting guest post over on design*sponge all about type. It led me on to chicagotype.com, an archive of found type in and around Chicago; some good, some bad, some just interesting. No tranquilizers.

Sometimes this internet thing just really works, doesn't it? onpaperwings added me as a contact on Flickr, so I had a look at his lovely letterpress work, and found his gallery, website and blog. All worth a look.
