t’s finally snowing in Boston. It was 70 degrees here on Thursday. Very anti-Decemberish. So, I’m extremely excited to see the white fluff whisping around outside and even sticking on the ground. I’m about to go celebrate with a fresh mug of hot chocolate and mini-marshmallows. But first, I want to share some fun Swedish finds with you… they’ll keep you happy and warm this Saturday evening, whether yours is snowy or not. 🙂

A new children’s book from Werner Design Werks, Alphabeasties is an “alphabet book, where the animals are made of type – all types of type. From A to Z” (from Werner Design’s Flickr page).
I am in love with each and every one of the “beasties,” and I can’t wait until there are more in stock so I can buy one for my baby niece and nephew (never to early to set them on the appropriate typographic path)!
Thanks to the always-fabulous Uppercase Gallery for clueing me in to the greatness!
