The Comfort of Thingy-ness Vol VIII

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I’ve done a Comfort of Thingy-ness post! So you know what that means…a new round up of some of my favorite covers! In case you missed them, check out Vol I/II/III/IV/V/VI/VII! What have been some of your recent favorites?

Also, if you love book covers as much as I do, you should check out the Great American Novels 1000 piece puzzle (sold only at Barnes and Noble)! I made it a few weeks back, and now it sits as a permanent (for the foreseeable future) part of my coffee table decor.

2015 Oscar Nominees Graphics Package

Although the Oscars happened a few weeks ago, the graphics from the broadcast just became available online. I watch the show every year, and every year the visual elements become better and better! This year, the graphics for all of the award categories were my favorite part of the show (competing just a bit with JLo’s dress). But I definitely wanted to share these with you (as late as they are), as I thought they were too awesome not post!

The creative director for this year’s Oscar’s package was Henry Hobson and the production studio was Elastic.
