Under Wildwood (The Wildwood Chronicles #2) by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis
Under Wildwood (The Wildwood Chronicles #2)

Brittney, January 1, 2013

The Wildwood Chronicles are the only ~YA books I've read in years. I wish there had been a series such as fascinating and engaging as this when I was a kid (though, I was a pretty big Hank the Cowdog fan). Under Wildwood proved to be an excellent follow-up to the 1st.

The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt
The Sisters Brothers

Brittney, September 17, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised by the clever originality of this novel. Few western novels manage to balance a gritty, sparse atmosphere with dark, witty humor - but deWitt easily accomplishes this feat. Easily the best book I've read this year.

Just My Type: A Book about Fonts by Simon Garfield
Just My Type: A Book about Fonts

Brittney, September 12, 2011

As a self-taught graphic designer, I found this book to be a great resource. While it succeeds wonderfully in examining the history and origins of fonts, what impressed me most was just how entertaining Just My Type was - a quality I find some design books lack. I especially loved the chapter on 'worst fonts in the world' - I really hate Papyrus.

Wildwood by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis
Wildwood

Brittney, September 8, 2011

I must admit I typically stay away from anything labeled YA - but the work that Carson Ellis and Colin Meloy have put into this fantastic story sold me. I love it.
