I’m often asked where to find modern baby books – the kind that aren’t sugar and saccharine, but that are meaningful and high quality and will serve as a landing pad for the scattered memories we so desperately want to hoard during those first few months. And although my old favorite was an admittedly expensive Binth design, I’ve found a new kid on the block that I love even more (at a fraction of the price):
Oh, man that Olivia reference will never get old. Anyway, these Donna Wilson (I love everything she does!) exercise books are melting my heart [not my thigh fat, though!]. I’d love to doodle a day’s worth of dreams inside these cutie covers.
Hippopposites(which is nearly impossible to spell, I might note), is the international debut book from French graphic designer Janik Coat. Adorably modern, Hippopposites introduces opposites and vocabulary in a design-driven fashion (and in the most charming way!). I’m adding this one to my favorite baby books list asap!
