Hello everyone, I hope you have been able to find moments of peace in what has been an intense and crazy week for a lot of the world. I will try and keep this scribble nice and short.
I am nearly done with the book, Let My People Go Surfing by Yvon Chouinard, and I don’t want to wait to finish it to recommend it because it is so good! Yvon is the founder of Patagonia and this book is the history of his business and also acts as a credo for the company. I think that if more people lived their lives like Yvon suggests we do, and as he believes businesses and governments should, the world could be in a much healthier place.
This is a 1 min. 42 sec. video and I can’t get enough of it. I am fascinated by typefaces and especially design used in the late 20th century. This designer cleverly combines the covers of old VHS sleeves and connects them together elegantly. Does anyone else remember the scrawl of ballpoint writing along the edge of their family’s tapes?
This morning one of my favorite artists, Novo Amor, came out with a new album. It is called, Cannot Be, Whatsoever. If you are interested in some good alternative-folkie-vibes this album does it for me. After my first listen through my favorite song is “Birdcage”. (Link for other music services)
Have a great weekend and keep your heads high. Better times are ahead 😌
