pretty type books

What to do when sitting at home with a bung hip? (and you've already gone around the corner for a chai latte and watched Oprah)...search for cool fonts on the net. There is this one amazing font that has been eluding me for a couple of years now, but on my continued quest today I found some inspiration at a boutique book publishing house in NY that at least has some very nicely executed font based books to admire...visit them here.

mon chocolat chaud (my hot chocolate)

It's that time of year. Both when it starts to get cold here meaning chocolate is required to warm the body  (you can freeze to death even in Sydney without it I've been warned)...and when some lucky people head to the south of France. My friend Helen is heading to Provence on Friday so to ale my jealousy and have my own little piece of France I'm turning to the hot chocolate scented candle by Ambroise and Ambroisine (cutest website art), beekeepers from La Sarthe region in France, but thankfully available here in Australie.
