The lyrics to David Bowie’s Space Oddity imagined as a children’s book by illustrator, Andrew Kolb. So clever. So cute. I’d love to see a whole series of these. I’m certain my nephews would be big fans of an AC/CD Big Balls inspired book.

It’s been a fantasy of mine for a while now to find a nice little parcel of land on a river or with a pond in upstate New York to build a modern cabin. I’ve just come across these lovely pre-fabs from Form & Forest. I might just have to do a price check.

While doing research for a project, I came across TypArchive. The site is a collaborative image database of handmade letter signage from around the world. In other words, this is porno for graphic designers and type admirers.

If you are in creative services and work with clients independently or run your own company, here is the best advice you’ll ever get on how to protect yourself. Fuck you. Pay me. This Creative Mornings talk by the wonderfully talented and amusing Mike Monteiro of Mule Design will make you laugh. It will make you cry.

Its quite disheartening to see the state of these 75 abandoned theaters across the US. They stand as reminders to the rise of corporate America and the decline of great towns and cities.

On a positive note, #49 in Brooklyn is in the process of being renovated.
