Backpacking: One Step at a Time… through time. Besides loving the outdoors and carrying the dream of the Appalachian Trail in my own personal backpack, I saw this and couldn’t pass it up. There’s still great info in here that your Garmin GPS can’t help you with it. The layout is clean and the black & white photos are well composed and complimented with the typical 70’s line drawing cartoons. While shooting this, with my iPhone, I realized I’m enjoying this so much I’ll need to build a set in the basement to get better shots.
Since I started this site / blog I didn’t know what I’d want to say or talk about in the blog. I think I’m going to use it to share some of my design and typography “finds”. I’ve been collecting and buying books since I was in 6th grade going to the original Maxwell Street where my grandfather taught me the ways of the “negotiation”. With that said, I’m going to start with a Scout Field Book I found while wandering the Western Illinois’s Yard Sale circuit. I really enjoy the sketches and typography from these early scout manuals. These drawings make me want to order some canvas and make my own tent. I’ll post when I can or I find something cool. Thanks for stopping by.
