Jason K, of 84/5 Studio, has created a series of beautifully executed 8.5” x 11” mini-posters for Miyazaki classics, from Castle in the Sky to Ponyo, in the style of well-loved and gently worn vintage Penguin book covers. See the series, which we spotted via Boing Boing, after the jump, and buy the posters — or a set of nine postcards to send to all your Studio Ghibli fan friends — at 84/5 Studio’s Etsy store.
This is a reminder that we still need to see The Secret World of Arrietty.

The Learning Power Of Lego
Over 400 billion Lego blocks have been produced since it was introduced to the world, and it has become a leadingforce when it comes to teaching children logic and a bunch of other useful knowledge that we all have at some point come to use in our everyday life. Lego is no longer just a block meant for play, but also a great tool when acquiring knowledge in various areas that we previously only had a pen and paper to elaborate our ideas on. I guess some of the block’s success lies in the extreme research and development phase that initially lead up to its official release and patent in 1958. There was extensive research done in order to create the ultimate design for theproduct. There was also the challenge to find the perfect material for a long lasting toy that could be used over and over again without ending up as a broken piece of plastic. I can’t state it enough, but Lego really is the solution to everything.
