Build your Own Eames House: House Industries Model

House Industries, a talented type foundry, created this Eames Case Study No. 8 block set that doubles as alphabet blocks showing off their Eames Century Modern type collection.

Each set of blocks contain "36 replenishable, Michigan-grown basswood blocks" printed with "29 separate hand-pulled screen passes." And they're incentives make me chuckle a bit: "In the true Eames spirit, your kids can create a ligneous yard sale on your living room rug while you're in deep conversation with your guests, then build this living landmark to demonstrate how you are properly introducing them to important bits of culture. And, as a whole, they take up much less room than those awkward and unsightly Montessori toys."
