Birds of Minnesota

Birds of Minnesota

Happy New Year! I’m back from a needed vacation, fully rested. Hope everyone had a great holiday season.

Birds of Minnesota is a project by designer Tony Buckland, that highlights the birds found in the state. Each bird is illustrated in a minimal way without losing its essence. Really lovely collection.

You can purchase the posters here.

v-a is a design studio based in Lisbon and New York producing some wonderful work like this booklet. I especially love the big block of color for the cover, combined with the clean grid-aligned type.

1692 Boogert Color Guide

This blew my mind.

“Traité des couleurs servant à la peinture à l’eau” is an 800-page color guide, written in 1692 by an artist known as A. Boogert. The book describes and shows in detail how to use and mix colors. I can’t even begin to imagine how long this took to make, and the fact that the colors are still so vibrant is astonishing. This is a work of art, and I would bet that most of what is in this book is still relevant today.

It’s also great to see that Boogert was also educated in grid systems. Have a look at how those swatches are organized.

A hi-res gallery of the entire book is available here
