Frozen water, in the right hands, can be extraordinary. Next time you’re sitting in front of an expert bartender, don't be surprised when she reaches for a club and chisel.

Here’s a glorious bit of design nostalgia for the New Year. It’s hardly a new find on the web; designer Nick Job first started this archive of the British Rail identity manuals in 2011, but I’ve just been reminded of it. Somehow I’ve never written about it either, which is a bit of an oversight given the entirely-unofficial and tongue in cheek name of this site: the British Rail alphabet and signage guidelines were also used by the British Airports Authority and National Health Service, making them as much a government standard as Britain ever usually manages.

Holy Onomatopoeia, What A Bat-collection!
