Fashionable Saturday: The Ink Is Not What It Seems


This week, I’m inspired by my current knitting project which is called From Another Place from the Kickstarter Twin Peaks-themed knitting book called The Great Northern. It makes me want to listen to Angelo Badalamenti, eat cherry pie and drink lots of coffee.

If you want to get in the mood, here’s a playlist from Spotify of some of the music from Twin Peaks:

*Massimo Vignelli is one of the most famous graphic designers in the world and best known to me for faxing a list of the only five fonts you need when I worked at a font shop in Chicago in the 1990s. While I’m more inclined to agree that less is more nowaadays, I still think I like fonts too much to live with just five fonts. But he did great things with his limited palette.
