7 Years of Daily Drawings in a 2500 Page Book by Artist Ruben Steeman

ruben-steeman01

For seven years artist Ruben Steeman posted one drawing each day to his website. After reaching the incredible milestone of 2,500 drawings he decided to put all of the drawings in one book. Various publishers told him it would be impossible to produce his book but he remained determined, crowdfunded it and eventually found a book binder to make it happen.

The result is 2500 Days of Rust an enormous 2,508 page book, weighing in at a healthy 3.5 kilograms. He points out that if you were to look at each page for 10 seconds it would take 7 hours to go through the entire book.

Take a look at more images of the book below as well as a video clip of the accompanying installation showcasing all 2,500 drawings on a 19m wide wall.

R.I.P. Prodigy

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
