Eastgate is serious about hypertext, but recognizes the need for other methods of storing data and telling stories. The handmade Italian journals they sell are absolutely gorgeous.

I haven't seen the book, but from the photos and description online, it looks beautiful, wonderfully made, and a little crazy. I want one of these myself.

Jewelboxing makes professional-grade CD and DVD cases...the kits come with everything you need (minus the printer) to make your own packaging.

Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker and wrote two little books called The Tipping Point and Blink. You may have heard me mention them and him on the site from time to time (or all the time, rather).

Surowiecki writes the a financial column for the New Yorker, one of my favorite features in the magazine.

Sam draws funny but poignant pictures from titles suggested by his readers. This print's title is "sometimes i just want to kill everyone".

You ship your CDs to Ripshark and they convert them to MP3. The VIP Rip covers about 450 CDs of music.

Choose any three shirts from the folks who bring you the popular Diesel Sweeties comic. Note the sweet use of Silkscreen.

Marshall's work has been featured on The Morning News and File Magazine sites. The print features a photo from Marshall's upcoming gallery show.

My friends Tamara and Julie make soaps and other bath and beauty products. My favorite is the Oatmeal & Honey soap.

This hardcover book contains over 140 full color pictures from the last five years of explodingdog.

If you're looking for web hosting, Textdrive "is a hosting company run by and for people who love publishing on the web". Did I mention *for life*?

Pixiesdiscs are limited edition CD recordings of each show the Pixies did on their 2004 tour. Collect them all.

Alison Headley, proprietor of I Like Beads and the Bluishorange weblog, sells delightful handmade jewelry when she's not dayjobbing.

TopStyle is an XHTML/CSS editor for Windows by the guy who created the excellent HomeSite.

PulpFiction is a newsreader for OS X that emulates the familiar Mail.app interface. Fresh Squeezed is also throwing in a copy of their Rock Star "name that tune" game for iTunes.
