There’s a three day House Industries “Pop Up Flea” in New York City, which actually starts today and continues through Saturday and Sunday. Sounds pretty interesting, and it includes some great contributors like my friends at 3sixteen.
Check out these two collections of old Penguin and Pelican book cover graphics. Things Magazine has an impressive archive of covers, by decade, including the ’60s. Some of them are amazing. And this Flickr collection of ’60s Penguin & Pelican covers maintained by Joe Kral is great too. Via The Ministry of Type.
My super talented friend Benjie Escobar has been designing up a storm lately. His new Stay Weird Forever website and stickers seem to be making a big splash, and gaining lots of traction. I’ve seen them all over the place, on and offline. Check them out. In all honestly, the likelihood of my not staying weird forever is probably quite low.
What’s the word? Hope you are having a fine Tuesday today. Here’s a link to an interview I just posted with Al Moran, co-founder of LA’s own OHWOW Gallery space, over on the Imprint Culture Lab blog. OHWOW encourages artistic innovation and it includes a gallery, publishing, special projects, and more, with locations in LA, NY, and Miami.
Egotripland have this great series of features called “5 Records That Changed My Life” and the latest is with my former employer Jeff Staple. I just noticed you can listen to the songs while you read about their significance, which is a nice feature, and possibly one that has been there since day one.
Last Thursday, I went to a great opening event for the current Theo Ehret: The Grand Olympic exhibit at 722Figueroa. Ehret was the house photographer at the Olympic Auditorium from 1965-1985, and built an amazing portfolio of compelling sports photography. The exhibit runs through the end of this month, from 2pm-5pm by appointment only. Check some of Ehret’s great work from the show here, courtesy of the guys at 722. And there’s a great video too.

Thanksgiving is about celebrating family by sharing a meal (I think) and what better meal to share than pizza? Great new stickers from Benjamin Escobar.
You might have noticed me making some noise about Architecture for Dogs, (the latest Imprint Venture Lab project, in conjunction with Hara Design Institute) recently. Only just launched, the project has seen an amazing reaction across the major social media platforms, and one awesome press feature after another. Highlights include The NY Times, Dwell, and Wallpaper, not to mention the Nov/Dec cover of Surface Magazine. [Read More]
