“I think people will have said enough to you about serious things, and so I am going to talk to you about what I feel is valuable, and that people think too little of, about cheerfulness and, something that is part of it as well, not being afraid about problems in life, but finding a natural solution for them.” Sophie Taeuber-Arp, 1937

 

Jonathan Safran Foer’s novel Tree of Codes is cut out of the original novel The Street of Crocodiles by Bruno Schulz. Although the most time I’ve spent with it was this game of peekaboo.

Variations on a theme from my postcards-of-the-west collection. Love the color and wear.

Book report

 
 

A slice of the scene the NY Art Book Fair a few Sundays back.

The Werkplaats Typographie set up a hopping book swap on a ping-ping table called Feed the Library.

Publication Studio, with Sam Gould, Mike Wolf, and Matthew Stadler at the helm, whisked ideas from thin air, producing and printing books onsite.

At bottom, artist Minori Kanda’s book with underwear.

The invitations for Objectif, in Antwerp, BE, are lovely handworked photocopies. Each includes a snippet of a longer text, info on the show and an image. It’s a treat that so much delivers in just two sheets of A4. Design by Will Holder.
