Target Christmas Catalog Cover

The new Target Christmas catalog arrived over the weekend...

The cover is absolutely stunning. Elegant and simple, it's amazing that a big box retailer agreed to print something so lovely.

Wal-Mart executives would never green-light such a design. They'd insist on smiley faces, corporate slogans, and lots of garish typography. That's why shopping at Wal-Mart makes you feel dirty, and shopping at Target makes you feel hip.

Amy Ruppel did this year's design, and a quick trip to her website shows that it's basically a re-work of something she'd already done. Oh well, as John Fogerty would tell you, there's no harm in copying yourself if people like what you do!
