Design/photography book favourites

I’m guilty of buying too many design/photography/illustration books. I often justify these purchases by saying that they will inspire me while also helping me improve my skills, and they do end up doing that most of the time (thank goodness!). The books I veer towards […]

Edinburgh

Edinburgh

After seven and a half years of living in the UK, I FINALLY ventured north of the border into Scotland. This trip to Edinburgh was definitely a long time coming, and spending only 72 hours in this beautiful and historic city was enough to convince […]
