Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design & Typography

I love NYC, treasures are lurking around every corner! Yesterday we went to the Herb Lubalin Study Center of Design and Typography at the Cooper Union.

On view in the gallery was an installation of Lubalin's original sketches, magazines, logotypes, and posters selected from the Lubalin Center Archive.

It was such a treat to experience the real deal - not just some 2x2" thumbnail in a history book. See some additional photos from the exhibit here.

1st ikea trip.

our halloween weekend was eventful, but not in the way one might imagine. It included 2 attempts to go to ikea, and finally making it (after taxi + 1 mile sprint across battery park + water taxi, and thats just getting there)

But wait, it gets better. We got home and up our 5 floor walk up to only discover we picked up the WRONG box...now chuck has the most unusual office chair (faux white leather - with black plastic trim - close eyes. imagine.) I'm trying to figure out how we can hide it in the closet while not in use..

Note: at the moment this chair is wearing a blue tshirt that says "sweet", giggles.

A piece of nostalgia

for maggie, ben, bet + lawrence cousins

I was walking around the east village over the weekend, and was shocked to come across this sunflower needlepoint piece. My grandmother made this exact piece in the 70s and it hung in her home in Tarboro NC.
