New Book Symbol.
Symbol, edited by Angus Hyland with Steven Bateman is currently hitting the bookshelves. I'm looking forward to picking it up. The book features over 1300 symbols, organized into groups and sub-groups according to their visual characteristics. Each category includes a short introduction on who the symbol was designed for, the designer, and in some cases, what the symbol stands for. These sections are interspersed with short case studies on both classic and more recently designed symbols.
Easy Image cropping.
Image manipulation, jquery.
I'm currently testing an easy way to add image cropping functionality to your site. It combines the ease-of-use of a typical jQuery plugin with a powerful cross-platform DHTML cropping engine that is faithful to familiar desktop graphics applications.
