I’ve always been of the mind that photography and type are a natural fit. They go together like kittens and cute … or, in this particular instance, like Austin, TX and the month of March. And with that rather obvious segue, I’m excited to announce that another Found Type Photowalk will take place during this … Read the rest of this item

Here is a good example of this morning’s snowfall as seen from our front porch. Note that our snow shovel and corn broom are still at the ready beside the garage.

Calgary seems to be a popular place to shop for visual content companies. One 800-pound gorilla in particular has loaded up his cart once again. If you haven’t already connected the dots, Getty Images bought iStockPhoto.com (and some apparently intangible assets) for fifty million smackers. Holy mother of crap. After the initial fuzz of bewilderment … Read the rest of this item

A wonderfully succinct (and accurate) story about the complexity, nostalgia, and joy of using a Newton by Marcus Hammerschmitt.
