A / No. 71 / Armin / A very minimalist and contemporary Mona Lisa.

A / No. 72 / Armin / The Letterpress shop, Studio on Fire, has a great blog with some excellent insight into the world of modern-day letterpress printing. Plus, if you like close-up shots of letterpress stuff, you’ll drool.

A / No. 60 / Armin / Pretty weird mash-up of ideas: The 69 Sexiest Rap Song Titles, some of them illustrated with the restroom man/woman icons. NSFW, I think, but depends on your company’s policy on stick figure sex Language is definitely NSFW. [Via Design You Trust]
