The huge library dubbed Book Mountain is part of a project that covers an impressive 9,300 square meters. […]

By Matt Kerley in New Design on Wednesday 26 September 2012

I picked up Too Many Nitrous at a local comic shop in WiIliamsburg, Brooklyn. This self-published zine comic by Billy Burkert and Samuel Rhodes clocks in right at thirty six pages. It’s as if someone rewrote the movie Too Fast Too Furious to make it not obnoxious. If you’re like me and enjoy racing, fighting […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Illustration on Friday 13 July 2012

By chance, we stumbled upon the Facebook page of Idrawalot, Karl Addison’s gallery and showroom, where we then stumbled upon some lovely snapshots of Mischief, the whimsical zine of drawings by Berlin-based illustrator Katrin Hagen’s (a.k.a. Mischief Champion) that Idrawalot now stocks. I especially like the one of two foxes looking disapprovingly at a fox wearing another fox as a shrug.

Francois Grumelin-Sohn Reader Find

He was responsible for the sound recording for several Beatles albums, including the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, definitely my favourite. Learn everything about every track, and what it historically and technically represents.
