Scrabble Typography Edition, designed by Andrew Clifford Carpenter

Hey typography fans, here’s a gift for you!

Last year Andrew Capener had an idea. He wanted to revive an old, but loved game. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their Scrabble set would come in.

He created a prototype and won over the hearts of the people at Hasbro. After months in production, a limited edition set is now available for pre-order!

This is no ordinary Scrabble game. Oh no. It includes a beautiful solid walnut storage case with drawers and metal tile racks. The gameboard is made of six panels of solid walnut that are lined with cork and magnetized so that they snap together and create a smooth playing surface.

And the most exciting part of this luxury edition? The walnut game tiles feature a variety of beautiful fonts. Additional fonts are expected to be available for purchase after this initial release.

Time for a typography geek-out game night, friends!

Lark Fine Foods Cookies for Grown-Ups


Russian Teacakes

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good chocolate chip cookie, but there’s also something really enjoyable about trying new flavor combinations and mixing sweet with savory.

For the sake of this post you could say that it’s the grown-up in me. But let’s not get too carried away with that kind of talk.

Lark Fine Foods artisan cookies have instilled some serious cravings for cookie flavors I’ve never tasted before.

Their ingredients are all natural and preservative free. Their cookies are award winning. And their business is run by a mother-daughter team in Essex Massachusetts. All the cookies are baked to order and neatly packaged, making them a delicious gift for foodies with a sweet tooth.

There are 8 flavors in their repertoire which creates quite the conundrum—which to try first?? I’ve narrowed my choice to the spicy chocolate Cha-Chas or the Salted Rosemary Shortbread. Decisions!
