“A leader’s real “authority” is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.”

Love this felt-on-felt typographic illustration by Debbie Millman of David Foster Wallace’s timeless wisdom. The artwork is available as a print, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

The Brooklyn Bridge in Letterpress Type

My friend Cameron Moll did it again. He designed yet another historic architectural structure entirely out of type, this time, the Brooklyn Bridge. He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the letterpress printing cost. I am happy to see that he has already reached his goal, but there are still lots of fantastic rewards to be had. Go get yours!
