“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.

A series of vending machines have been popping up in public spaces around France. However, rather than offering the usual snacks and sugar-filled drinks, these dispensers print off short stories for people to read while they wait for their flight or dawdling shopping companion. Developed by innovative publishing company, Short Édition, the machines offer a choice of 1, 3 or 5 minute reads, which are then randomly selected from their catalogue. See more images below.
Casa Vicens was the first home designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (best known for the Sagrada Família in Barcelona). Built between 1883 and 1885, the building has been a private residence for most of its 130-year history. However, thanks to MoraBanc, who purchased the building in 2014, the building will soon be open to the public!
For the past two years architects José Antonio Martínez Lapeña and Elías Torres (of Martínez Lapeña-Torres Arquitectes) and David García (of Daw Office) have been working on extensive restorations to help transform Casa Vicens into a cultural centre, “home” to both permanent and rotating exhibitions. See more images of the site below or check it out in person this October!
A brilliant collaboration between Areaware and VSCO, “Puzzle in Puzzle” uses images from South Korean photographer KangHee Kim’s “Mirrors” series to create custom puzzles that are effectively two-in-one. Designed to highlight the image-within-the-image, they can be completed both separately or together. See more images below!
