I LOVE the book as media and when I see someone who makes it something special it makes me so happy. I shared Sara de Bondt’s design for Jonathan Safran Foer’s special edition before but you should check out Visual Editions the publisher behind it. They do books with visual writing, books that aren’t just books, but that has conceptual meaning in how they look. Visual Editions started a Flickr account where there are also some great examples of other people’s work (second example below). Would love to see more of this!

I’m gonna sound grumpy now, but I think there should be a law against Christmas decorations before 1st of December. I just saw the first load in the shops and Christmas isn’t exactly on our doorstep. Jesus! So I guess blogging this amazing series called Christmas in America by photographer Jesse Rieser is only fitting. Let’s get into the freakin’ Holiday Spirit!

I met the wonderful and talented Evelin Kasikov when she spoke at CPH Typo where I also did a talk about my exhibit. I had been an admirer of her’s for quite a while so when she asked for a photo of me for her portrait series I was over the moon! How many people can say they have a stitched portrait of themselves done by someone fab? Well, twelve to be exact! Check it out. Do you recognize me?

I don’t blog websites that often but I wanna show you G’nosh London based food company that does dips and yummy little things. I really like their website because of it handmade feel and scrolling through it really makes me wanna try their product. Yum!

German illustrator Julia Pfaller draws up some pretty interesting man types. I wonder if she’s single too ;-)

Here’s another illustrator whose drawing style makes me so jealous. I love that a lot of it is quite naturalistic but it has its’ little faults and quirks. The rough shading of a worn pen also works wonders in building a bit of contrast and texture ang with the colour overlays.

Whenever I go to Germany I always pick up a copy of the magazine Tush. I almost panicked when I couldn’t find it when I was in Berlin last weekend but after a bit of searching I found out that I’d been looking straight at it without seeing it, only cause they redesigned the masthead. Goes to show how much we search for that visual recognition. Anyway! I love the magazine cause I always come across photographers that I really like in it. Like Armin Morbach. Totally punch in the face style shots! LIKE!
