Handy Links 2

Handy Links

I give you my weekly collection of the most interesting links for your finger-clicking pleasure.

Featured this week:

A typography reference and 2 type t-shirts, an interview with Marco Arment, Tweet Library for tweet archives, a Photoshop action called Browser UI that adds browser chrome to mockups, and Focus, a great new book by Leo Babauta.

The Typographic Desk Reference

Type fanatics are going to love this! Theo Rosendorf, the creative director for the design agency Matador has created the The Typographic Desk Reference, with exhausting detail on typographic terms and classifications. $45 available at Amazon.

Well Kerned & Letterspaced T-Shirts

Another one for the type fanatics — men's Well Kerned and Letterspaced typographic tees from the Typography Shop. $22 each, international shipping too.

The Pipeline No. 28: Marco Arment

An excellent podcast interview on The Pipeline at Dan Benjamin's 5by5 network with Marco Arment, creator of Instapaper and blogger at Marco talks about his minimalist philosophy, coffee, how he created instapaper and his time at Tumblr.

Tweet Library for iPad

Developer Manton Reece created an iPad app to archive, search and manage your Twitter tweets. If you've ever searched for your old tweets you know why this would be useful — Twitter only offers access to around 3,200 of your most recent tweets). This app grabs your tweets and catalogs them offering a variety of other features for organizing them. Tweet Library is $10 in the App Store (and worth every cent).

Browser UI

Browser UI, a slick Photoshop action from Ben Shoults, automagically wraps browser chrome around your mockups. Free Home Standard Edition features the cutting edge IE6, Deluxe Edition version includes Firefox, Safari and Chrome. $3 download.


Focus, the new book from Zen Habits blogger Leo Babauta. In it he calls out our age of distraction and ways to get control of the constant distractions in our lives to focus on the things that matter. The entire book is available as a free PDF (intentionally uncopyrighted) while the full version includes added video and audio, bonus chapters and guides for $35.

Thanks for reading. Catch you all next week.
