From my French counterpart, Murielle, come some things that I thought were worth sharing: a short film about dingbats by typographer Lucy Brown, and the wonderful website of London publisher Visual Editions, where they “think that books should be as visually interesting as the stories they tell; with the visual feeding into and adding to […]
In response to my review roundup came a few things worth featuring on their own. For instance, this inky mashup by Susan McLaughlin, at whose blog, Depingo Ergo Sum, there’s lots more inky, arty goodness to be found. She even wrote a poem about it: I’M DRAWING MYSELF with a digital pen I’m making it […]
It’s been a while since we’ve posted reader artwork on these pages, but Lisa Lefemine just emailed us these lovely sketches and I figured we should share. Also of note is the fact that Lisa draws with ink; the king above was done with J. Herbin, as were these whimsical cows: Lisa sells her work […]
The Skin reading is live! If you remember, Karen got involved with the project several years ago, tattooing the word “you” on her chest as part of a larger story by the artist Shelley Jackson. Last month, we made a video of her, which Jackson then knit into a longer video story. You’ll catch Karen […]
A few years ago, Karen participated in artist Shelley Jackson’s Skin Project, a story that was “published” word by word in tattoos on the skin of volunteers. Now, Jackson’s piecing together a reading from videos of those volunteers. It will be hosted on the Berkeley Art Museum’s website starting on March 1. In the meantime, […]
I didn’t realize it earlier, but our new Habana artist series encompasses more than Keith Haring — we’re also importing two Matisse designs, along with Picasso’s Portrait of Dora Maar (above). Here’s a preview of the Matisse:
Speaking of cover designs, I’m excited to announce a new addition to our Habana family… a suite of “artist series” notebooks with artwork on the covers. First in line are these darling “Haring Habanas,” as we call them, that feature the art of Keith Haring! We’re importing them from France, and they should be available […]
Here’s something fun I’ve been meaning to post for a while, after seeing it on BoingBoing in December… a stop-motion film by Adam Rosenberg made with 265 pieces of laser cut paper. Enjoy!
It was a pleasant surprise to see artist Amanda Vissell’s posters for girls featured on BoingBoing the other day, and reminds me that I’ve been meaning to post these sketches she shared with Karen. Looks like some were done on Clairefontaine sketching paper, and some on a Rhodia Dot pad. Be sure to click through […]
Have you guys seen this super clever Dutch notebook video? If not: watch it now, you won’t be disappointed. After that, you can check out some of the other notebook videos that Evelien’s made. Awesome, eh?
