Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. I was really moved by this essay by Cristina AlgerĀ in the New York Times in which she remembers visiting her father’s office as a child.

2. I also loved the history of key design on Slate.

3. And speaking of design, check out 10 crazy and unusual book designs over at Flavorwire. Fab! (Hat tip: Lisa Romeo Writes)

4. If you’ve ever wondered what happens when you hit an egg with a baseball bat or explode a birthday cake, you’ll want to watch these video highlights from the Danish TV show Dumt & Farligt. (Hat tip: Very Short List)

5. If you enjoyed Texts from Hillary, you’ll also like Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan.

6. And if you want to smile, read today’s interview with the Bloggess on The Happiness Project.
