  1. I'm in love with that tie card. I think I shall buy it and frame it for my shopaholic husband who always tells me that he 'needs' more shirts.

    Thanks for the cute ideas!

    I love John Lennon + your website
  5. One of my best friends is a graphic designer and I'd love to get her a coffee table book about logo design or typography for Christmas. Do you know of any good titles I could find?
  6. Hi Amber,

    One of my favourite design books is:

    The Handy Book of Artistic Printing.
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1568987056?ie=UTF8&tag=eadrch-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1568987056

    It's not specically typography but it has some fantastic samples of vintage type and designs.

    I used it for inspiration on this project: http://www.eatdrinkchic.com/post.cfm/free-labels-oil-vinegar-bottle-wooden-box-vintage-style

    ....

    I also really love:

    Hand Job: A Catalog of Type
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1568986262?ie=UTF8&tag=eadrch-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1568986262

    Has some great samples of hand-drawn type.

    ....

    This book also looks pretty cool:

    New Vintage Type

    I hope I've been helpful :)
