gratuitous type

Over the weekend, I went to the New York Art Book Fair, which was overwhelming but great.  It was exciting to have Women Artists be part of the event at the Ed Varie table.  Side note: if you want to pick up a copy, you can now find it on sale at some of our favorite shops:  Myth & Symbol in Houston, Olive in Austin, and (soon) Editions Kavi Gupta in Chicago.

As for highlights that I have no personal investment in, one of my favorite publications was Gratuitous Type. Beautifully designed and printed.








And now! I think I'm going to start closing out my blog posts with links to other things you should check out on the internet since I'm always coming across things worth sharing and forgetting that I have multiple platforms to do just that.  A couple of them are old by internet standards, but I don't care.  Lots of Buzzfeed this time around for whatever reason, but again, I don't caaaaaaaaaare.

My roommate makes fun of my decorating style, which is basically just plants, pictures of plants, and floral patterns. The only way to improve on plant art, of course, is for it to appeal to my proud Emotional Girl status, so Ashley Ronning's work is basically perfect.

New Friends for Anthropologie

We always love a good collaboration that involves best friends & smaller brands, and the New Friends for Anthropologie collaboration is no exception. Personally I always appreciate when designers venture into more utilitarian housewares and I can find some justification for the purchase (not that a beautiful wall weaving isn't a complete necessity...). As with their weavings, the rugs are an ideal balance of textures, neutrals & a splash of neon. And of course, the best part being they're kind of affordable (neither of us are actual adults with adult budgets & incomes but we can dream!).
