Do you love retro arcade games? I certainly do. While the pixel art character sprites get a whole lot of love, the fonts used to display your score and life status deserve much more appreciation.
Typeface designer Toshi Omagari’s book catalogs dozens of the chunky pixelated fonts used in arcade games from the 1970s through the 1990s.
Do you or someone you know love to read books? Then check out these sweet book bags which are inspired by popular books. Each bag features artwork from a famous literary work, and is sure to be a great conversation starter.
Moscow-based Krukru Studio offers a library full of awesome bags in their Book Bags shop, which is loaded with cool designs based on everything from The Little Prince, to Harry Potter, to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
Because of their boxy design, the bags are spacious inside too, and each one features the title of the book on its spine as well.
The bags are available in a variety of colors of faux and real leather depending on the book.
They say that books are portals into other worlds, and that’s actually very true. You might say that books are our very own portal gun. So these Rick and Morty Portal Bookends are the perfect way to keep your books upright.
I love walking through neighborhoods around the country and seeing those Little Free Library boxes popping up. They’re a great way to share books that you’re done reading, and to discover new ones. But most Little Free Library boxes are just that – LITTLE.
This book looks just like the Handbook for the Recently Deceased from Beetlejuice. But unlike the one in the movie, it won’t instruct you on what to do when you die. Instead, it’s a hardcover journal, so you can write down your own thoughts about being recently deceased or anything else.
This journal has 250 pages for you to fill.
O Discordia! I am a big fan of The Dark Tower franchise and one of the things that I really liked was how Stephen King wove himself into the story. I also liked how you read books within books in some parts, it’s like Bookception.
I assume in the future where man boldly explores there are no safety regulators or unions. I mean if every time a guy wearing a red shirt left the ship he died there would be some sort of safety investigation.
This fall, gamers will be able to get your mitts on the official World of Warcraft cookbook from Simon & Schuster. Written by Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, the book features real world interpretations of food that players might see in the game.
Artori design has come up with an amazing bookend and shelf that celebrates super women. These two superhero designs are perfect for fans of Wonder Woman and other women who kick butt. Both pieces feature a silhouette of a female superhero demonstrating her superpower, which is to hold your books up.
The design on both the bookend and the shelf is really striking and full of action.
I’ve sworn off reading any fantasy book series that isn’t already complete before I start it, after the massive annoyance that was The Wheel of Time series. I started that series in high school, and still haven’t finished it.
When Superman’s not busy saving the world from impending doom, he’s out and about making sure that people’s books don’t fall or topple over. At least, that’s what it seems like with Israeli design studio Artori Design’s brand-spankin’ new Book and Hero bookend.
The bookends seem to defy the laws of physics, but the secret to the flying effect is just clever design: the stand for the books is angled, which makes it look like the pile of books is above to slide down.
I was totally into Choose Your Own Adventure books growing up. I remember begging for these Darth Vader helmet bookends from the book fair at school growing up to hold my adventure book collection. Sadly, when the Vader bookends came in, they sucked and fell down if you put more than a couple books between them.
I don’t think you will have that problem with these awesome Build on Brick Bookends, since they have metal that goes under the books for stability.
The Harry Potter books have certainly inspired a lot of young people’s imaginations. That’s why their covers should be more magical. Well, art design student Kincso Nagy has made it so. These covers are much more enticing to wannabe wizards.
Reading books with kids can be a fun bonding activity, but you can’t always be there to engage with the little ones. With Sparkup, even if you can’t be with your kids, they’ll still be able to read along with you.
