Friday Free Font 63

The font was inspired by America’s mid-20th century and road travelling philosophy, especially by Jack Kerouac’s novel ”On the road”. Made by Slava Krivosnov from Tomsk, Russia. Hitchhiker is made with a lot of love for the detail and it flows very good, so you can use it perfectly for headlines and 70s styled prints.

20 Aphorisms

Thanks to the great independant publisher The School Of Life we have here a treasure box of twenty cards with short sentences and large truths put into an attractive yellow box with black embossed print.

About the Box

Aphorisms are short, pithy statements designed to provoke a thrill of recognition at valuable, amusing, dark and perhaps awkward truths. They have selected twenty of our favourite aphorisms from across history and printed them on stiff card, ready to be sent to a friend or to sit on your desk for inspiration. The cards feature quotes from G.K.Chesterton, Cyril Connolly, Otto von Bismark, Nietzsche, Napoleon and even more great thinkers.

About The School Of Life

The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. They address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world. Based in London they do a very great job on education and learning for people like you and me.

We love this small box and with what great love it is made. It is the perfect present for a creative person and we think a very good lesson for life.

We often tell our kids that by the time they’re 16 years old, they may not need to learn how to drive. Self-driving cars for those who can’t drive are an incredible chance to be more autonomous, and for those who can, it could be a luxury, possibly becoming a standard. So cool! At the same time, we’ve asked questions: What happens to the jobs of professional drivers as technology changes their businesses? How has technology shifted the machine/human balance in other industries in the past?

In the news: Google’s Self-Driving Car Project, a 2-seat electric vehicle with no steering wheel, brake pedal, or accelerator. What it does have: a cute little face.

In the archives, a previously featured Prius version, and more electric vehicles: the Spark-Renault Formula-E racecar, a behind-the-scenes tour of Tesla Motors, and the e-volo volocopter.

Retired fan maker John Brooker was bored with his plain hedge in East Rudham, Norfolk, and so he decided to shape it into something more interesting. Note to self: it takes around 10 years to sculpt a hedge into a 100 foot long dragon. 

With extreme dedication and precision, Brooker used hedge clippers to sculpt six legs, a large head with pointy teeth, scales, and wings into what was once a simple, rectangular row of shrubbery. He spends three days every two to three weeks taming the overgrowing beast and has to climb up a pair of 6-foot-high ladders to reach the top.
