I just found this print by an illustrator that I’ve really liked for a while, Tabitha Brown, aka The Pairabirds, that is super striking. And, a bit of a change from the illustrations that I’ve seen her do before, which are also really lovely. You can see or purchase this print at her site here, as well as see more of her work.

Alexander Girard pillows @Modern Seed →
I am (not surprisingly) a huge fan of Alexander Girard’s work. To me, he is one of the best there ever was. Simple, striking, playful and powerful all in a kind and beautiful way. That’s best. These designs were revived and reissued via Modern Seed in June of 2006, but I think they might be gone now. Boo hooo. They’re beautiful. Here is the original post about these pillows on...
Bird clock by &design →
Super adorable, and more importantly super nice way to wake up with a chirping bird instead of a yelly alarm clock. I just love this little guy from &design in Japan. It’s the perfect counterpoint to the traditional kind of alarm clock whose screeches give me the chills. Who wants to wake up that way when you can be chirped awake? The little birdy can be wall mounted on placed on its...

The Abandoned City Hall Subway Stop Now Visible To... →
If you ride the 6 train to the end of the line and get off at the Brooklyn Bridge stop, you’re missing out on something incredible. As the train loops around to go back uptown, it passes through an abandoned and beautifully preserved City Hall station from 1904. The city closed the station in 1945, mostly because at its height only 600 people a day used it, and because the loop created...

She’s been the group’s “illustrator in residence” for nearly a decade now, working closely with Decemberists frontman Colin Meloy (who also happens to be her husband) to scheme up fantastical, intricate illustrations not only for...
