IN SEVEN DAYS AROUND THE WEB #17
Happy Friday everyone, and you'll be pleased to know that it is in fact my birthday today! So I won't go on for too long about my weekly internet finds, just look forward to lots of nice photography and a little bit of literature and graphic design thrown in for good measure. Enjoy:
Zoe London has written about feeling 'Pinterest worthy' and it's a really thoughtful and interesting article.
Lana of Lana Pribic is currently travelling around Iceland and her recent post about Reykjavik is beautiful. One of my big dreams is going to Iceland and exploring the landscape and Lana's photography is so damn good!
This article by Grafik is interesting and is all about the International Brno Biennial of Graphic Design and its move from tradition to focussing on student talent and education.
Chloé's Resort collection is beyond beautiful and Journelles have all the pictures for you.
Edinburgh Book Festival looks insanely good! I wish I could go, especially now that I know Lydia Davis will be making an appearance! Here's an article about it on the Guardian, who is the main sponsor of the festival.
This Ignant article about artist Anna Ladd is great. I love coming across new artists and creatives via the internet and her 'Things I told the internet, but didn't tell my mom' series is such a good idea.
One of my favourite illustrators, Faye Moorhouse, is doing a 'Wonky Drawing Sale' on Etsy. It's a charming idea and definitely a chance to grab one of her artworks for a little less money.
An interesting piece on Berlin's gentrification by Annett Gröschner on Slow Travel Berlin.
This tutorial of how to make a hand-drawn typeface is just great. And I love the idea behind it "When I think of the future of written communication, it would be wonderful if everybody had his own font and could continually refine the appearance of his/her own digital personal typeface. In elementary school children would learn how to draw their own typeface, and over years one builds, develops, adapts and extends the design to ones needs" (via LinkedIn)
Man Repeller have written about swimsuits - I've had a soft spot for them for quite a while now and will almost certainly be on the hunt for one soon. As soon as my spending ban is over, that is.
