Classic Records as Penguin Books!

Huw Gwilliam beautifully re-designed a bunch of classic records mimicking that signature Penguin style. Pure genius.

    awsome

  • this is great stuff – all the world weary worn covers look amazing. some of these recent albums art work extremely well to this book style -the warp stuff/ belbury poly (have a look)/ and stereolab have gone all out to do this maths text book or benelux graphic design style. i hate to call it retro-future but its vintage now and modern then ! (same meaning) but easily my favorite is a RE- working of the licensed to ill. it stands ot as the leading idea and is very well executed xx love it

    I would love to see the back of the licence to ill. do you think they even bothered to do one?

  • genius work!

    re: licensed to ill,
    i don’t think it works very well. rendering the art in such a generic style adds nothing of value to the original, removing the logo & serial # from the tail kills the visual gag and i’m not quite sure what distressing it has to do with anything. two more points – by making it a square the paperback book connection is weakened and not showing the back removes the punchline.

    it can be expressed by the equation (se1+ se2) – C = –t
    (mixing two stolen elements without the addition of a concept equals a waste of time)

  • emily

    a no to the back cover then?
    – i do agree a little bit, the point was that on first seeing the album it had a wonderfully detailed, really sleek cover but not until most people got it home did they bother to notice the smouldering wreck on the back.
    i wouldnt call it a wate of time though, it completes a really awesome set, purposley made in a certain, unique style.

  • Excellent work…love the concept and execution!

  • hasan

    NOW, If the album was available for re:issue OMG!!! I AM BUYING….

  • Really kick ass work. How did you get the work to look so old and used?

A Camera Made from 32,000 Drinking Straws

Photographer Michael (Mick) Farrell and Cliff Haynes perfected a way of capturing images using a wooden box filled with 32,000 drinking straws. Started in 2007, and undergoing several different versions, the Straw Camera basically works by processing the light collected through each straw (as opposed to a pinhole camera which creates an image from a single point).

Due to the multitude of perspectives the resulting image looks a bit like a pointillist painting made up of many, tiny dots. See more images below or click here to check out the book recently released about the project!
