Wink is a website that reviews one remarkable paper book every weekday. My wife, Carla Sinclair, is the editor. We take lots of photos of the covers and the interior pages of the books to show you why we love them.
This week we reviewed:
Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology – A handsome collection of this little-known art form
The Where the Why and the How – 75 questions that can’t be conclusively answered by an iPhone
Letter Fountain – A stunningly well-crafted bible of typography
Adventure Time: A Totally Math Poster Collection - Featuring 20 Removable Frameable Prints
Stencil Republic – 20 laser-cut, brown-paper stencils bound on perforated pages
The Good Life Lab – Moving from a high-powered life in New York to off-the-grid living in New Mexico
