Whatnot: August 28, 2015

Because I have a background in marketing and design, I spend entirely too much time browsing through graphic design books in appreciation of well-designed logos, letterhead and business cards. Flavorwire recently featured these clever book-inspired business cards. (There are only 11, so it wasn’t that much time.)

Kenton sent me a link a few days ago pointing me to Judgey, a simple online game that lets you judge books by their covers. As booksellers, I’m sure you’ll win big with this one. Play here.

Apparently, folks also judge books by their color. This recent article in The Washington Post looks at how books play a role in design based on color rather than content.

All Fridays should feature chocolate.
