Ace Jet 170 – Type

Best blogs list Ace Jet 170

Well, this one, just a beaut. ‘Found type, print and stuff’. If you’ve spent too long on tinternet and forgot what real things looked like, thus guy’s blog will make sure you’re eyes re-open to all the wonderful printy things around. The nice brown colour of it and the types of images he posts kinda make you feel like your sitting in very great sitting room with just the right amount of wood, just the right amount of great pieces of stuff and just the right amount of mess to be comfortable and happy. Mmmm. Always a nice one to visit.

 

David Maybury’s Blog

This focuses on children’s books. I’m not a great reader of big long novels so kids books still appeal to me in a big way. They’re short so they have to fit all the good stuff in concisely. Concentrated wonderful, like a shot of art and literature. This guy will help you get your fix of it.

 

Noisy Shoes

Jane is a textile designer and fashion enthusiast amongst other things. Some of the stuff she posts about is direct from her own life, other bits are wonderful things she’s found wandering the internet gazing at pretty things. Both types are equally wonderful and provide what I think is a nice balance between the ‘real’ and the ‘digital’ lives we lead :)  Her textile design background comes across in the detailed, ornate, textured or just incredibly unusual things she shares.

 

Color Me Katie

This girl is like…ultimate cheesey sweetness in some ways. But if you let your sceptical barriers down for a moment and open up, it’s pretty fun. It’s like Science of Sleep meets children’s tv meets art meets a massive bag of pic n mix sweets.

Illustrator, mostly for kids books, beautiful stuff. Shares things she’s worked on, tips and tutorials and offers training. So if you get really swept away in wishing you could draw cats like these, you have the option to sign up. Pretty. Nifty.

 

Amateur Couture

Best Blogs List Amateur Couture

What bad timing. Amateur Couture has just decided to take a break from blogging. He ‘I love fashion and fashion loves art’ tagline kind of says it all. The stuff she shares is limitless in concept, theme and depth but always the very highest level of whatever it is. The crème de la crème of beautiful images, fashion, art and everything in between or stemming from one or the other.

If you love pictures that you can nearly taste they’re so delightful, this one’s for you. Even though she might be taking a break, there is plenty there to go through and should keep you going for a while anyway.

Not posting that much stuff but worth a look even just to check out the music typewriter. Wha?! Yeah. Seriously. One of the most amazing looking beautiful objects I ever laid eyes on.
