type foundry Emigre's new type specimen catalogue is here!

from Emigre:
Instead of providing rules, which often render safe but bland results, we believe that ultimately any font can be successfully combined with any other font. It's not so much a matter of which font combinations to pick, it's a matter of how you use the fonts in combination. Size, color, tracking, contrast, layout and overall purpose determine how fonts can be combined successfully.

so true...

The DBA Pen

think before you write. the DBA 98 pen is the only 98% biodegradable pen in the world. made from potato-based plastic, it's also the only pen to use ink composed of simple, pronounceable ingredients. and it's produced at a wind-powered facility in the United States. can't get much greener than that!
