A non-issue

Hey folks, I’m writing this on my iPhone from my bed. I tested positive the other day for Covid, which knocked me on my ass for most of this week. Thankfully, I’m fully vaccinated, and I’m starting to feel better — but that means I haven’t been able to put together this week's issue. I’m so sorry. Next week I’ll be back on schedule with a new issue.

In the meantime — I don’t want to leave you empty-handed — so here are some interesting things I came across this week while lying in bed:

Found in Daniel Benneworth-Gray’s excellent Meanwhile newsletter: I love these 3D architectural renderings of brutalist-style buildings by Clemens Gritl.

An informative documentary on the making of Super Mario World, the launch of the Super Nintendo, and how the game perfected the concepts of the Super Mario series.

Ghost is a lovely humanist sans-serif typeface consisting of 5 weights.

Check out this blog with tons of photos of cool-looking vintage computer hardware.

I’ve been looking for a well-made super minimal pen, and I found the Pen Type-B — but damn, is it expensive.
