At the Typo Conference today in San Francisco. I've come here for there years in a row, and it's been my favorite industry event: thoughtful, diverse, and intimate. I love the connection to type and print and the wonderful bridges to tech, space design and creativity at large.

"Tant de forêts," beautiful trailer of a short film based on a poem of Jacques Prévert. The poem speaks of the irony of the fact that newspapers warn us about deforestation although they are made of paper themselves.

"Tant de forêts arrachées à la terre
Et massacrées

Tant de forêts sacrifiées pour la pâte à papier
Des milliards de journaux
attirant annuellement l´attention des lecteurs
sur les dangers du déboisement des bois et des forêts"

If you are going to Asia and care about design: GoVoayagin is an amazing way to connect to local guides to galleries or teachers of amazing things like sumi-e, calligraphy, manga and ikebana. I took multiple classes a day while in Tokyo, it really made my stay.
