A Brief History of Type | An Unpretentious Infographic

I just recently came across A Brief History of Type | An Unpretentious Infographic, by Arthur William Presser, and wanted to share his interpretation of the history of type—the short version. This “unpretentious” infographic (as he puts it) is his version of the history of type, from the creation of the printing press in the 1400’s to the development of Helvetica in the mid 1900’s. For the full story, you should check out the book, Just My Type: A Book About Fonts (and read my blog post about it)!

When Are They In Season?

I won’t even begin to lie by saying that I cook. My oven is like Carrie Bradshaw’s—it’s used for storage! But I do LOVE fruits, and have the hardest time remembering when my favorite ones are in season and don’t cost an arm and a leg! I recently came across the Chasing Delicious website, and found a fantastic set of posters that tells me just that. The series of charts includes, not only in season fruits, but also veggies and herbs. You can purchase these prints (8″ x 10″ or 11″ x 17″) in the Chasing Delicious online store, along with some other awesome Kitchen 101 prints—perfect for both people who are just beginning to experiment in the kitchen or seasoned pros who just want some quick reference guides.

Lemon.ly created this super fantastic poster for the Avengers (If you haven’t seen it yet—you definitely should!). They asked Twitter to rank the six avengers across five different superhero categories and according to the comic book experts, here are the results…

I love that Iron Man has 110% Swagger on the Swagger Meter! Agree? Who is your favorite?
