The Small Stakes

Awhile back I spotted this lovely book online, in big thanks to Katrina, and instantly fell in love with it, as I am huge fan of Jason Munn's work.

In the future I would love to cut out my favorite posters, frame them, and hang them up in my (future) place.

Have you purchased any neat books lately?

  1. That book looks really neat! I wouldn't mind picking one of those up for myself.

    Last week I purchased a Typography book for the mister. We're both really into typography and with him being a graphic design major I thought it was the perfect gift. I love it! <3

  2. oh! you got it! yayyy! so pretty.

  3. I bought The Handmade Marketplace by Kari Chapin - as great as everyone has said it is! Another recent book purchase - Recycled Home by Sally Bailey and Ryland Peters & Small - really really great coffee table book for any crafters/DIY'ers home.

  4. Vanny- You so should! It's such a beautiful book, and the posters are so inspiring (and also from some of my favorite bands). Also, a typography book sounds amazing! Being a Journalism major/Journalist, I'm kind of into typography as well. I'm hoping to learn more about it this coming school year :]

    Katrina- Yes! It's beautiful! Have you picked up a copy of it yet?

  5. Suki- I love The Handmade Marketplace! I've flipped through it many times at Barnes & Noble, and other bookstores. Also, I really need to check out Recycled Home-sounds like a neat read! Thanks for the suggestion :]

  6. I love small stakes!! Such a good idea to frame your faves :)

  7. That's a really cool book...Thanks for sharing.
    I'm having a giveaway at my blog :) Check it out!

  8. Isn't he just brilliant? He did this poster for Norah Jones with roses and a piano that I just die looking at.
