Type Tuesday: Textile Trademarks

We're back from the big road trip! Doesn't it always feel like you need a vacation when you return from a holiday?

I have lots of discoveries to share with you from the past three weeks, some treasures purchased at Renegade, nice shops perused along the way, new stockists and new ideas. But first, I'm going over the printer's proof of our upcoming book: The Elegant Cockroach by our very own Deidre Martin, illustrated by Stefanie Augustine. Stay tuned for a sneak peek of this lovely book later today.

And now on to today's Type Tuesday: Adrian Wilson has an amazing collection of typographic objects and memorabilia from the textile trade. In issue 5, he shared some insight and images from this relatively undocumented niche of graphic design. He has just launched a blog and will be speaking at TypeCon LA this weekend. {Are any of you attending TypeCon? Send us pictures and commentary from the conference and we'll post them for next week's Type Tuesday.}
