Monthly Selections: March 2016

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

A beautiful, rough look into two odd teens who fall in love in the 80s and deal with their families, school, and each other. Eleanor & Park is such a good book and it’s now at the top of my list of favorite contemporary YA. Cute and heartbreaking and incredible.

In Progress by Jessica Hische

After it was recommended to me, I bought illustrator, designer, and letterer Jessica Hische’s In Progress, a look into her process and the work she’s done. Since I’ve been wanting to practice my hand-lettering skills ever since the calligraphy class I took a few semesters ago, I was really excited to get this and I’m ready to look to this for inspiration for practicing my skills.

Birdy – “Keeping Your Head Up”

I’ve listened to Birdy a few times, especially her rendition of “White Winter Hymnal,” which I listen to all the time in my usual rotation of playlists. Her newest song, “Keeping Your Head Up” is beautiful and I dig the video’s style and costumes.

Design Obsession

It’s a toss up between these Caran d’Ache pencils and their packaging/the wrappers for Mast Brothers chocolate bars.
