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.
The incredible Monster Children Photo Issue just landed on my doorstep!!! I have been following this Australia-based magazine (and gallery) for a long time now, and they had a big influence on the way I designed Booooooom. If I had my own magazine, this issue would make me want to put C4 in my trunk and drive through the front window of my warehouse. Many magazines out there need to take notes or give up. This it how it should be done!
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.
