if you just quickly glanced at the cover of this book, you’d probably think this was a book on type and lettering basics. in fact, if you look a little closer (or, look inside) you’ll see it’s actually an activity book. jam packed at that!

as i mentioned in my post about book covers, type (and lettering) is an important aspect in book covers, but unless you’re interested you might not realise how much of it is in your daily life, from packaging, tv and film graphics, posters and much, much more.

tatouage: blossom* | tatouage: wild* – £12.99

tatouage, both ‘blossom’ and ‘wild’ are books of mini prints, and temporary tattoos. within ‘blossom’ is floral and botanical imagery, and in ‘wild’, there are sea creatures, birds, butterflies and more. both contain over 100 beautifully drawn and coloured temporary tattoos.

i really like creative books that have this sort of interactive element to them. you can keep them as is, or you can cut out and use the tattoos, give them to friends, and put up the prints around your home. they’d also make lovely little presents.
