RANDOM SELECTIONS FROM LETTERHEADY
Matt Groening (1991)
Gene Roddenberry (1967)
Harry Houdini (1920)
Hugh Hefner (1955)
Albert Einstein (1932)

Luxirare, a weekly webzine that doles out small doses of food and fashion brilliance, presented these vibrant colored, edible crayons.
Strange? No, no. There is no need to label or question why, just drop what you’re doing right now and get lost in the visual feast.
