Probably Camilla Engman wrote the first comment on this blog... She is an artist I really admire: smart, witty, poetic and unique. She lives in Gothenburg Sweden and has an eye for finding the extraordinary in the everyday. This publication presents her inspirations, artworks, illustrations, photographs and insights in her everyday life.
This creative publication is made by two of my favorite design bloggers, Susanna Vento (Varpunen) and Riikka Kantinkoski (Weekday Carnival). If you're into really stylish DIY, advent is the perfect time, so just do it...
Watch out Swiss readers! While surfing, Lili's post reminded me, that I found a wonderful analog magazin shop in Switzerland. Lorem not ipsum offers an interesting range of indie magazines, difficult to organize in Switzerland. Here are my favorites:
It's not a big secret, I'm a food lover but not the chef cook... When I stumbled across the vegetable illustrations from Stanislava Pinchuk aka Miso I couldn't resist to preorder this cookbook Mr Wilkinson's favorite vegetables immediately. Have a look!
Weighing in at a staggering two kilograms, this book includes
everything the renowned KesselsKramer agency has made in advertising,
design, music videos, documentaries, product design, publishing and
more. Famous and infamous brand-building for the Hans Brinker Budget
Hotel, Diesel, Absolut, Heineken, Nike, Ben, do, and others. Go to the
gym, then try and lift 2 KILO of KESSELSKRAMER . It's the best way to
see how this small agency from Amsterdam became a heavyweight in the
world of communication.
This is one of the books who shows a different view on Paris, more lovingly and intensiv, and not so superficial like other designbooks are.
Abstract: In an increasingly globalized, anodyne world of
shops and shopping experiences, Paris boutiques remain distinctive and
unusual. This lovingly assembled collection of Parisian shops and shop
windows - from the bizarre to the everyday - reveal and revel in the
sheer poetry and beauty of the ordinary, showing us what our eyes
usually fail to see. These pictures all tell tales, whether they show a
repetition of one object, an accumulation of different items, an
explosion of clutter that seems to swallow the shopkeeper, or an
artfully crafted display. They invite the viewer to ask questions: who
their makers are, what their story is, what they are trying to convey.
These are portraits of both private and public worlds, based on
real-life settings. As you turn the pages, you automatically make links
between the picture, the accompanying business cards and your own
experiences, memories and stories - this is a sourcebook for inventing
stories. Editor: Thames & Hudson
