birthday gifts

so I love birthdays. this year I got some pretty awesome stuff.
Designing Type by Karen Chang;
Lettering & Type by Bruce Willen & Nolan Strals
also a sweet homemade pillow by Lisa. Monogramed with a Rockwell Y.

forgive to poor color in the photographs.

I also got a new battery for my MacBook Pro (as I'm typing this, my old battery says, "Condition: Replace Now" at 17%, "You are now running on reserve battery")
