Bembo's Zoo



"This high-concept abecedary, the picture book debut for deVicq de Cumptich, should delight collectors of stylish picture books andaficionados of the graphic arts." -- Publisher's Weekly

It's hard to explain why, and much cooler that it sounds, but this is really satisfying for adults and fun for kids learning their letters (or even younger). He makes each animal out of the letters in it's name. Check it out!

Map the Fallen

What an incredible way to honor the men and women who have given their lives for our country. On his own time and as a public service this guy has created an overlay -- -- for Google Earth that shows where each American soldier has died in Afganistan and Iraq, then connects that visually to where they are from, along with a bunch of other info. It brings the war home in an incredibly powerful, honorable, and humanizing way.
