Below are a few special links from my archive to tide you guys over. The first is a book by Bob Hoffman who writes a blog under the same title. The pages aren't full-sized, so it's a fast read. If you're interested in branding, then this is for you. The rest of the links are just fun things I picked out. If you liked these, feel free to browse through the rest of the archive.
