1. I’ve waxed poetic about the Morning Brew many a time, and I am SO HAPPY I stumbled across the Brew’s Bookshelf. (I always enjoy a good business book recommendation, and they picked some real gems in April 2020.)

2. Ian Barnard is an incredibly talented hand lettering artist, and he collaborated with Dotgrid on the A5 Letter Builder Notebook. Super cool. ($26)

3. And on the subject of letters, over on SimpleBits, designer Dan Cederholm just released Parkly, a new display font based on vintage National Parks Posters. ($19)

4. More letters! RABL is a modern take on a word game from the 1940s. ($25)

5. We saw this Tiny Pong game featured on a Dude Perfect video, and it’s definitely going on my Christmas list. ($20)

6. Zoom call, anyone? Keep an eye on mmhmm, an upcoming app that aims to make video chats far more entertaining than they currently are.

7. I may have linked to it before, but Mailbrew is an app that lets you make automated email digests from all sorts of sources. It has great design and I just love the idea, but I haven’t yet found a way to put it into play.

8. Watch a lot of streaming video on your Mac? Check out the Clicker apps from dbk labs.

9. Time for another robot lawnmower!

10. ICYMI, Steve Martin wrote this wonderful tribute to the late Carl Reiner.

P.S. Do you like this email? You might also like the Morning Brew, a daily digest of news, business, and tech. I read it every day. (Not a sponsor, I just like ’em.)
