Julian Montague’s Daily Book Graphics

Dear readers,

I am in the process of migrating over to Squarespace, where I just launched my first full-length post (I had been tinkering with a couple brief posts prior to this one, feeling out the site). My first full-length Squarespace post is devoted to the Daily Book Graphics project of artist/designer Julian Montague, which features a ton of amazingly drool-worthy vintage book images.

You can check out my post and Montague’s lovely book designs by clicking on the screenshot above.

I would also love any and all feedback on layout, design, content, etc.!

Best,

Lesley

Thanks to the fabulous and newly formed Friends of Type for introducing me via Twitter. Everyone go over and check out Friends of Type immediately! But be prepared: much drooling will ensue.

Wordshop Wednesday: Egg Press!

For a blog entitled Words & Eggs, I’m quite astonished that I haven’t yet featured Egg Press on the site. What the heck have I been doing with my time?! Well… better late than never, right? Right.

So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you to the intricate loveliness of… Egg Press!

They even have ridiculous, little baby onesies:

Egg Press also offers a ton of Valentine cards, but I refuse to display them to you right now. I figure I’ll do some sort of Valentine post later on, even though I generally find Valentine’s Day an annoying pseudo-holiday invented by the Whitman’s Sampler and FTD (among others). But feel free to head on over to Egg land and check out their V Day cards, because they’re pretty d@mn awesome (for a lame-o “holiday”).

French Friday: L’oeuf!

For this week’s installment of French Friday, I’d like to celebrate the incredible, edible egg. And some inedible eggs, too. French style. This blog is titled “Words & EGGS” after all…
