I do like a map and these abstract city maps by Jazzberry Blue are no exception with their blocks of colour and graphic shapes they're definitely ticking all the right boxes.
It's really interesting to see the street plans in such a simple form. I love how crazy and random the London streets are compared to the others and the New York one is grid heaven.
Jazzberry Blue have a great body of illustration work, including more maps for New Delhi, LA and Jerusalem all available as Giclee art prints here.
Colourful illustrations, charming but lo-fi print and wonderful lettering all come together on these Sicilian fruit wrappers to turn an unremarkable, everday item into something beautiful.
I'm always amazed at the level of detail on packaging like this, that for the most part goes totally unnoticed.
When the Dover Book shop closed it's doors last year we worried that was the end of a great resource, but it's back (well in virtual form anyway).
Their website is now up and running, taking orders of their fabulous copyright free books and cds 24hrs a day. How have we managed without them?!
Auto Type XXVXIII - some more fabulous automobile lettering from New Years Day at Brooklands Museum. My particular favourite has to be the Leyland bus (top), not only because it reminds me of my home town, but I love how the letters are deeper at the top to work against the curved bodywork. Looks very 70s.
#138 - British United Airways passenger ticket and baggage check, 1963. I love to see a classic logo on an original bit of print so I couldn't leave this behind at the boot sale.

Those clever boys at Sell! Sell! are helping Fentimans take on the might of the big boys with a cheeky new advertising campaign for Curiosity Cola. Genius, we love it...
