Process Recess Vol. 3

I got my grubby little hands on a copy of James Jean’s Process Recess Vol. 3 and it is beautiful. It is already sold out on his site so you better hurry to your local bookstore to make sure you get a copy.

An Awesome Book

Dallas Clayton just sent over my very own copy of An Awesome Book, his children’s book about the importance of dreams. He toured around reading his book to as many kids as he possible and for every book he sold, he gave one away. I have to admit I got a little bit emotional as I read it, books like this are necessary!

We Are The Friction

Sing Statistics (Jez Burrows and Lizzy Stewart) sent me over their new book, We Are The Friction, and if it were a woman I would propose to it. It is a perfect 10. A flawless victory. Illustrators and writers were paired and asked to produce work inspired by the work of their partner: stories from illustrations, and illustrations from stories. The result is pure magic.

Erin Rommel

Beirut’s The Flying Club Cup album has been my soundtrack for the past couple weeks, I don’t really know why. And then out of the blue, Erin Rommel passes me some work and I find this little canvas book buried amongst some of her older (student) work.

Frankenstein / Ballets Russes

Not too long ago, I saw an image of this book on jjjjound and wanted to know what it was. By some magic, it appeared on my doorstep this week. Ballets Russes is a beautiful documentation of the Russian ballets that took place in Paris that moved ballet into the high fashion world. I love the drawing section! It’s a hardcover with nearly 350 pages so I’m sure the shipping wasn’t cheap – Huge thank you to Anton for your mystical mind-reading abilities and everyone else at, Frankenstein. You can purchase the book here.

Modèle Puissance

Julien Kedryna, from the drawing collective Modèle Puissance, just let me know about about the collective’s brilliant new book, Random. There are 100 copies of the book and they intentionally made more drawings than what are featured in any one copy of the book, so only 80 of the 100 books will have the same drawing. The drawings also appear in a completely different order, so each one has a new neighbor in each book.

It gets better, the books feature six different types of paper which allow the viewer to identify each artist, and 20 of the 100 books feature the original drawings! Amazing!
