How to move a T-Rex dinosaur across the US

We welcomed home the #NationsTrex today, after a very carefully packed cross-country journey. Now visitors will be able to see curators and staff carefully unpack, catalog, photograph and 3-D scan the 66-million-year-old fossil in the Rex Room before it is sent off for cleaning.

Here Be Monsters

I noticed this wonderful Icelandic project of illustrated type inspired by medieval maps featuring fantastical sea creatures. 

Design by Reykjavík based Stella Björg, these decorated capitals remind me of the Victorian illustrations I’ve written about recently. I love that several of the creatures appear to be based on specific Icelandic mythical beasts, as named at the bottom of the print. I also really like the print colours and flecked paper that gives the final work its antique look.

My “Here Be Monsters” illustrated letters started from the simple idea of writing “MONSTER” but having finished it just didn’t seem like there was much left to complete the alphabet. I was in no hurry to complete it, so very slowly monstrous letters got added and finally there appeared a complete alphabet. - Stella Björg
