November 14th: Weekly Design Links

“When I put a bicycle wheel on a stool, the fork down, there was no idea of a ‘ready-made’ or anything else. It was just a distraction. I didn’t have any special reason to do it, or any intention of showing it or describing anything.” – Marcel Duchamp

Normally, I’m posting other people’s projects. This week is a little different–I’ve got something of my own to share. Introducing 8-Bit ABCs, my way-too-long in the works book which is exactly what you think it is. The digital version is free (on Apple iTunes, Kindle, ePub or PDF) but if you love the project then you can pre-order a physical copy of the book.

On to your regularly scheduled links…
