Man oh man, this is just pure pleasure! This is what I call graphic porn in it’s purest form: 448 pages of candy for the eyes. Can’t wait to get my hands on this!

Sketchbook - Hansje van Halem, an overview of 10 years of type and pattern drawings:

448 pages
hard cover, linen bound
printrun 200
Published by Uitgeverij de Buitenkant

For assignments as well as personal research, Hansje draws letters and patterns. This book is a compilation of self generated, commissioned, applied, rejected and unfinished sketches, type drawings, experiments, patterns and failures made between 2003 and 2013.


Published by my favourite publisher Uitgeverij de Buitenkant, they know, THEY KNOW how to make a book. This awesome publication also commemorates her ten year anniversary as an independent graphic designer. Go Hansje!

In the meantime… I have this in my hands RIGHT NOW. And it is EVERYTHING I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE AND MORE. Just AWESOME. Best buy this year, no doubt!

Collaborate posters

How can you collaborate more with others? What dreams and projects would be better if they were shared? Why is it difficult to collaborate? Why is it worth it?

Great work by Lilly Lulay, very graphic design esque photography. I love the presentation of the cut-out photgraphies in United Colours of Venice.

(Like you need a reason, but still) MORE REASONS to quickly go to New York, namely this FABULOUS bookshop. And they’re not only selling BOOKS, also RECORDS.

And also, also this!

Anyway, vital information if you’re actually IN New York (unlike me :[ ):

In order of pages

I think I want this book by artist Veronika Spierenburg.

Another treasure! This time a whole archive of the Russian subway system, dozens of maps, tickets and tokens, all the way back to 1931. But that’s not all, there’s also photos of metros, books and the Metro newspaper. I’ve never seen such an extensive online collection of ephemera, very impressive! One is bound to get lost in there, specially if you can’t read Russian, like me. But that’s the fun part!

And Liza loves books, no doubt. Oh what a treasure this site is. It shows the collection of bookcollector Liza Enebeis. Thanks for sharing your beautiful treasures with us!

I hate libraries, the idea of borrowing a book is like a one night stand, you hope it will last longer but you know it won’t.
