Typekit, “… a subscription-based service for linking to high-quality Open Type fonts”, is now live and available to all.
A superb desktop wallpaper by Alex Cornell. Loving the subtle text and texture of this one. Looks nice on the iPhone as well. ( via ISO50)
Birdhouse for Your Soul is a touching post by Greg Knauss on why he loves the internet. Absolutely worth a read. ( via)
Craig Robinson of
Flip Flop Flyin’ has a new iPhone app out that boasts, “… 1,000 Minipops on your iPhone/iPod touch which you can look at whenever and wherever you want.” Minipops are blocky, pixel art renderings of famous people.
Authentic Jobs is having a No Retweet Necessary Contest with some pretty excellent prizes, some of which were hand-selected by partner sites (we chose a Nintendo DS Lite).
I also saw
donut seeds for the first time. ( via)

Mule Design’s newest t-shirt, the El Vetica, which boasts “… celebrating the career of Mexico’s only typographer/luchador”. Purchased.
Mr. Eaves, a new sans-serif companion to Mrs. Eaves from type designer Zuzana Licko. The “Q” is especially excellent.
Chromeography, a photoblog entirely devoted to “… praise of the chrome logos and lettering affixed to vintage automobiles and electric appliances”. From Typographica.
I also saw this
photo of Jenne Farm in Vermont, which pretty much sums up how beautiful Fall is in New England.
