AMASSBLOG my name is james phillips williams. most everyone calls me jp. i have been a designer in new york for 20 years. i started this blog at the urging of my friends and fellow designers who were familiar with my manic collecting. my collections are varied but generally have to do with typography or design.

This is a beautiful site. There's something about the lighting and white backdrops (and the way the material is photographed and annotated) that makes me feel like I'm thumbing though a museum.

Beautiful and fascinating. I adore stuff like this, and daily I fight the urge to collect.

(Also: I want to read this, but can't— physically. Oh, my aching retinas.)

I'm dubious, though, as to the claim that not using a shift key saves time. After teaching myself how to touch-type when I was 10, whenever I don't use capital letters on purpose it just feels wrong somehow and seems to take longer for my brain to wrap around.
