We have a set of all 7 art editions to give away to one of our readers! Have a look inside the latest issue, “Renaissance”, below.

If you wanna snag the entire set, recommend a cool magazine for me to check out in the comments below. I’ll select a winner on December 18th.

Giveaway: Vinyl Moon

VINYLMOON-05VINYLMOON-07VINYLMOON-06VINYLMOON-04

I think it’s safe to say these are the most deluxe mixtapes ever made. Music blogger Brandon Bogajewicz’s concept behind the Vinyl Moon project is simple: Subscribers get a new mixtape mailed to them each month, on limited edition vinyl, with beautiful packaging by a new different designer.

The images above are of Volume 3, featuring packaging designed by Clint Soren. You can see volumes 1 and 2 (designed by Joseph Veazey and Keith Negley respectively) below.

So if you’re a music lover, today’s your lucky day! We have two prizes for Booooooom readers: 1 set of volumes 1-3 (sold out) and 1 three-month subscription to Vinyl Moon. All you have to do is leave a comment below with the name of a song that you think Brandon should include on an upcoming mixtape! I’ll let him pick 2 winners on December 18th.

Will Barras “Yeah Man”

will-barras07

Will Barras sent me over a copy of his fantastic new book, Yeah Man, and it’s almost too much to look at in one sitting. He is one of the purest talents I’ve encountered; I’ve seen him paint huge murals without so much as a sketch. He was one of my favourite artists long before we ever met, and I feel lucky to call him a friend. Do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of this thing. Have a peek inside the book, below.
