Speaking of the morning news
, the letters
is a side project by one of the news'
editors. It looks intriguing, a sort of collaborative community weblog that prides itself in a minimal approach, turning the contributors' thoughts into bite-size morsels. The small-scale is easily overlooked, so perhaps it's time for another link to Paul Lukas's fine Inconspicuous Consumption
webzine, the on-line presence of his publication Beer Frame
(also see his excellent book
). The latest musing is about green ketchup
- are our colour perceptions in danger of more disruption
The next issue of things
will include some thoughts on Martin Parr's Boring Postcards
, a relatively recent publishing phenomenon. The books appear to have spawned a small on-line following - with Retroglobe's
collection of Swedish
examples being especially well done. These collections (others here
) are a treasure trove for the fan of the non-descript architecture of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
