Slate linked to an upcoming Taschen book titled Logo Modernism. As Taschen’s site describes it,

This unprecedented TASCHEN publication, authored by Jens Müller, brings together approximately 6,000 trademarks, focused on the period 1940–1980, to examine how modernist attitudes and imperatives gave birth to corporate identity.

Seeing the Slate link reminded me that I’ve had Logo Lounge sitting in an open tab in my browser for, well, months…

I’ll never be a great graphics designer (I’d rather code), but anyone who works with graphics (even if it’s only coding a web framework that “consumes” graphics) ought to seek inspiration from others’ works.


I thought I bookmarked this a long time ago – apparently I didn’t.

O’Reilly’s Test-Driven Development with Python (by Harry Percival) is still available to read online at the O’Reilly Atlas site (formerly O’Reilly’s Chimera Labs, if I remember correctly and if the URL is any guide).

Percival’s book was made available to read for free courtesy of O’Reilly’s Open Source Convention (a.k.a. OSCON). Since my budget is currently limited, I’m very happy for the opportunity to read this book without having to buy it (or keep checking it out of the library).
