Free Font - Library 3 AM

Library 3 AM is a cleverly formed, all caps 'stencil' font designed by Igor Kosinsky. Each character is formed from a single line, making it more convincing when used as a 'neon' font.

Available from Font Squirrel in regular and 'soft' style.

The Art Institute of Chicago recently unveiled a new website design. They have placed more than 52,000 high-resolution images from their collection online, available to all without restriction.

Check out the paint strokes in Van Gogh’s The Bedroom, the charcoal details on Charles White’s Harvest Talk, or the synaesthetic richness of Georgia O’Keeffe’s Blue and Green Music.

Anthony Mancinelli – World’s Oldest Working Barber

New York Times reports: [edited]

Mr. Mancinelli is 107 and still working full time, cutting hair five days a week from noon to 8 p.m. He has been working in barbershops since he was 11. Warren Harding was in the White House.

He has a trim build, a steady hand and a full head of snow white hair. He spends much of his day on his feet, in a pair of worn, cracked leather black shoes.

Asked — for the umpteenth time — about his longevity, Mr. Mancinelli offered only that he has always put in a satisfying day’s work and he has never smoked or drank heavily.

Longevity does not run in his family, and he was never big on exercise. Diet-wise, he said, “I eat thin spaghetti, so I don’t get fat.”

He has all his teeth and is on no daily medication. He has never needed glasses.

“I only go to the doctor because people tell me to, but even he can’t understand it,” he said. “I tell him I have no aches, no pains, no nothing. Nothing hurts me.”

One reason he continues to work, he said, is that it helps him stay busy and upbeat after the death of his wife of 70 years, Carmella, 14 years ago. He visits her grave daily before work.

Mr. Mancinelli lives alone. He drives to work, cooks his own meals and is determinedly self-sufficient.
