I’ve also created a mirror of kottke.org on Tumblr so you can read and share posts right in your dashboard. I’ve chosen just these few options because I don’t want a pile of sharing crap attached to each post and I know that kottke.org readers actually use and like Twitter, Tumblr, and even Facebook.
Jason Kottke: kottke.org redesign, 2012 version. I have to say, the Tumblr mirror is very well done, and it makes a lot of sense (although as a minor quibble, it does mean variant URLs).
A bit of me is sad that even the mighty A-listers of old are feeling the need to put on various service-dependent buttons and mirrors. Another bit is realistic that this is where the eyes are. Ho hum.
I was about to post a selection of great covers by designer Matt Dorfman, but then on his blog I came across a really interesting post about the cover he designed for The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson which was my favorite cover of his anyway.
Above are all the different options and developments he came up with on his way to the final cover and jacket design, which are the last two images of the nine above. Really interesting, I love the finished piece. Read more about it here and look at his other work here.
