In July 2011, Foster Huntington (@fosterhunting) left his job and moved out of his NY apartment and hit the road in his VW Vanagon. In two years he put more than 80,000 miles on his odometer, surfing, and meeting other people who were also living in their vans. He started documenting these vehicles and tagging them with #vanlife on Instagram.
Foster is now raising money to publish a book of his travels called “Home Is Where You Park It”. Take a look at the video below!
My friend Hana rules! She’s the one in the middle, then on the left, then on the right. She’s the one I dedicated the first two Booooooom mixes to (here and here).
She spent the last couple years traveling the world, shooting “switcheroos”, portraits of people swapping clothes. After she’d shot more than 200 of them, and had them appear on every blog imaginable, she decided to put together a book.
Well, she’s finally released her “Switcheroo Book”, and the best news for you guys is that I have a copy to give away! I’ve been sent hundreds of books since I started this site and I can honestly say this is one of my absolute favourites. She spared no expense producing this thing, and the final product is gorgeous.
If you’d like to snag the book, take a couple minutes to read my short interview with her below, and then leave her am encouraging message in the comments! I’ll pick a winner in two weeks (July 12th). This is open to everyone!

Coinciding with James Jean’s show at New York City’s Tilton Gallery earlier this year, was the release of his “Parallel Lives” book. The limited edition of 1,000 signed and numbered books sold out in a single day.
Soon after that James mysteriously vanished. While the artist remains underground, his publisher Pressure Printing has just released an electronic version of his catalog. This version comes with an additional 179 behind-the-scenes process images, I like seeing how his work changes as he goes.
I have a digital copy to give away! If you wanna snag it, leave a haiku message to James in the comments below!

I’m experimenting with Vine, and it might end up being a fun way to show books. My favourite photographer, Garry Trinh, gave me this beautiful one of a kind book when we met up in Australia. Make sure you follow him @garrytrinh, he’s always posting really great work.
