The day I’ve been waiting for has finally come. The Brooklyn Book Festival ’09!!!!!!!! YAY I love books. There were 166 publishers in total. I wish we had this every month. (Sorry for some grainy photographs)
all

So these are books, flyers, bookmarks, leave-behinds and whatnot I got from the festival. Some are nicely designed (love) and some are blehhhhh. There are more on my table. Apparently I’m a clepto.

mbp_flyer

This I like. A typographic flyer of all the title they were selling today from Mark Batty Publisher. It’s a silkscreen! nice yes?

books

Because I like their flyer I bought 2 books from them. They are graphic illustrations by Noma Bar. I don’t know why I didn’t know anything about him until now. Where was I??!?? His works are out of this world. He reminds me of Charles Goslin.

This is so cute. A free T-shirt I got from C-SPAN booth. It came in a shape of a bus.

Lastly, food street map. Say food and information design and I’m there. It achieved some level of success because I had no problem finding my food.

What made me happy today: of course, the book festival
