[Book and Album reviews] Week 7

Very short reviews this week.

Book : Stop Stealing Sheep and Find Out How Type Works by Erik Spiekermann

A book on typography. Not really easy to review, but if, like me, you want a basic primer on type, you could do a lot worse. Short, clear and to the point.

Music: O2 by Son Of Dave

Mutant blues and beatboxing. It worked for Tom Waits, and it works here for Son of Dave. Really enjoying this one. It’s not Waits – it’s much closer to traditinoal blues, and lacks Wait’s voice and songwriting, but I’d still suggest that if you liked Real Gone, you give this a listen. (Available via Emusic, for those with accounts.)
