ONE OF THE COOLEST LINKS I’VE EVER POSTED ON HERE: Gallery of Book Trade Labels. Click that link, and scroll. Do it. Posted it about a year back or so. One of my favorites, ever. Make me want to shut down the factory floor and go hit the used book store. I just might.

WHEN BEN SMITH TALKS, WE LISTEN: Here’s what he had to say, “Mikey Burton and Cranky Pressman have been doing some great work as of late. Check out his “Don’t lose heart” coasters. Makes us Ohioans proud.” Indeed. Check out what he’s talking about right here: Mikey Burton and those coasters.

Check out his Logos section. Some incredible stuff in there. Oh-hi-oh!

Thanks for the shout out! It means A LOT coming from you sir. Here’s the link to my good friend the Cranky Pressman. He does some amazing letterpress work.
