is now available. Andrew Lowkowsky’s
musings on Barcelona are being printed via Cafepress's
new print-on-demand service. I can't for the life of me find any other books being made and sold this way on their site, though.
Daniel Meadows’ The Bus
, before and after images between 1973 and 2001 (via haddock
). Also linked: a child’s guide to the ZX Spectrum
, and scans of the seminal Your Sinclair
magazine. We will never tire of old computer nostalgia.
More hidden stuff, this time in Fight Club
, via march design
. Also, clueless client quotes
/ cute picture of an Alfa Romeo
. One of the most beautiful
Alfas at that. Related: toy Alfa Romeos
, the next best thing.
designs the interiors of yachts, which must be a great excuse to go wild
with other people's money. In our humble opinion, the world's most beautiful boats are built by the Italian firm Wally
. The 118' Wallypower
(not a great name, admittedly) has to be one of the meanest-looking boats ever built, and their sailboats (such as the Wally B
) are beyond elegant.
I live on your visists
, a weblog / cheesedog
is a music-focused weblog / new band: the splendidly-monickered Ivory Springer
(which brings to mind handlebar moustaches and polar explorers, both images they play with on their site) sound somewhat like a certain American three piece
, but that's no crime / poetry and performance at Fiasco.tv
/ the work of Mark Lombardi
(via abstract dynamics
) - a lengthy essay on Lombardi's artistic representations of global connectivity ('a post-Conceptual reinvention of history painting').
A few weeks ago there were some excellent photography links at Featured
. Now it seems to be in limbo. Check back soon / yet another new Crystal Palace
has been proposed for South London, this time designed by Wilkinson Eyre
. Presumably the earlier scheme
by Ian Ritchie
is now dead and buried
. Read more at the Crystal Palace Campaign
and visit a virtual version
of Joseph Paxton's original. There's even a VRML
model, which utterly confuses my browser. Oh brave new world of virtual reality.
Have a good weekend.
