Thursday, October 02, 2003
Let's kick off with the daily dose of imagery (especially today's vertiginous CN Tower picture), via 990000, who also points us towards Another Magazineís 'Face' feature / speaking of new magazines, Zembla is a new literary venture, published five times a year. There's not a lot on their site (yet), but the print edition is very promising, with contributors including writer Toby Litt and photographer Nadav Kander. There's even a neat little movie (quicktime, huge) to take you into the analogue heart of the magazine printing process.

Caran d'Ache make the world's most satisfying box set of coloured pencils / Plasticbag snaps MacCormac Jamieson Prichard's ongoing reconstruction around the BBC's Broadcasting House. More about the re-building from Jonathan Glancey. Related: the history of Broadcasting House / handy ways to use plain English / collecting Vaseline glass / flashy histrionics at eight + nine / slick vector illustration at juniatwork.

Motoring related: Batmobile gallery / the Free-Way three-wheeler / diagram frenzy: thirteen tunnel alternatives / Highways and Communities is devoted to the 'History and Evolving Design of Highways, and their interrelationship with the adjoining communities'. The site focuses on the freeway history around Washington DC, e.g. Takoma, with this great (unbuilt) proposal for a multi-facility Freeway structure. Also: 'more than just a hunk of concrete', and the North Central Freeway, with its evocative renders of a sparsely populated future: I, II, III.

More autos. This vintage homebuilt motorhome is inspired by the Corvair-based Ultra Van. Related, but hugely less enticing, Dormobiles / very, very tacky: the 'luxury Neighborhood Electric vehicle'. It's clearly the faux-wood trim that gives these vehicles their edge / the incomparable Playboy Bunny guitar.

Megnut researches the world of teenage girl bloggers, is deluged by links / one for the self-fulfilling prophecies department / the art of Chinese paper cuts, via Enigmatic Mermaid / historic photos of Orange County / the compleat diagram of strange persons, 2003, via tmn / creative explosion over at Hung Drawn and Quartered, a bi-annual festival that descends on a particular London borough with a range of exhibitions and events. This time it's Shoreditch.

This Guy Bourdin tribute site was linked via the story of Madonna being sued over her 'appropriation' of Bourdinís visual aesthetic. See the comparison pictures over at Guybourdin.org. I think this is the official site - whatever, it has a great picture mosaic, as well as 75 wallpaper-sized images, 1 through 75. Related me-fi discussion.

Last, a very big thank you to Coolstop, who made us their pick of the day yesterday.
