Here are a few highlights from 2013, in my humble opinion – just sharing – I’m no expert/critic. Needless to say, most real highlights for the year happened offline!
Book of the Year (Fiction): The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
Technically, this was published in 2009, but I didn’t get around to reading it until this year.
Book of the Year (Non-Fiction): Shadow Type
I saw a lot of amazing art & design books in 2013 but this title from Princeton Architectural Press stood out thanks to the amazingly curated collection of vintage type it contains.
Album of the Year: Head in the Dirt – Hanni El Khatib
Such a good album. I never got around to posting about it here somehow but it was definitely my favorite LP of the year. It’s still on heavy rotation. On a semi-related note, I did interview Innovative Leisure label-founder Jamie Strong for Imprint Culture Lab.
Trip of the Year: Pow! Wow! 2013
What an amazing experience – great artists, epic setting, creativity for days. Would love to go back again.
Post of the Year: T-Files 040: Erik Otto
This interview with talented SF-based artist Erik Otto (who is currently working in Mexico if I’m not mistaken), was the Typo-Graphical post from 2013 with the most visitors. Thanks! Please come again.
