Occasionally I like to link to some random stuff and call it “links n’ junk” but I have two sites here that are so not in the junk sphere that I couldn’t properly label this post in that way.
First, we have Designers & Books which describes itself as:

That’s pretty flipping interesting while simultaneously wrapped in nicely designed site:
Then we have a site by my buddy Matthew which I’ve linked to earlier but just need to bring up often: Stretchbook. He describes it as “a collection of creative exercise” and “where ideas go to work out”.
