Flickr Mondays—Angeles Peña

I was having a hard time finding someone to post about today until I happened upon Angeles Peña’s beautiful work. I love that she’s able to capture so many different types of shots with the rainbow. Amazing.

50 and 50

I’m really diggin the style of the project “50 and 50” — where 50 designers are invited to make an illustration of their state’s motto. The colorscheme (a sophisticated red white and blue) and format is consistent, and curator Dan Cassaro has a sort of modern-Americana vernacular + workhorse Futura-y look for the site which works great with the selected (typographically skilled) contributors. It’s good to see this style done well by more folks than just Draplin — though looks like he’ll be doing Oregon.


North Carolina by Matt Stevens — I’d have bought a print of this one if that had been an option; as it wasn’t I figured the next thing was to blog it. Please guys, prints? Or t-shirts? Tennessee by Matt Lehman. Massachussets by Mark Weaver.

Just in Time, or A Short History of Production

I am a sucker for off-register process color, but a limited edition book printed one color at a time on this chain of obsolete printing technologies? Full of pictures of the changing technologies of mass printing? Oh yes please. From London-based designer Xavier Antin.

A book printed through a printing chain made of four desktop printers using four different colors and technologies dated from 1880 to 1976. A production process that brings together small scale and large scale production, two sides of the same history.

• MAGENTA (Stencil duplicator, 1880)
• CYAN (Spirit duplicator, 1923)
• BLACK (Laser printer, 1969)
• YELLOW (Inkjet printer, 1976)

Also available from Antin: Printing at Home, a book of recipes for hacking old inkjets to make, for instance, the brushjet printer, acid printer and potato wheel printer (shown)

Liberty Puzzles


I’m not really a puzzle person, but the super-intricate wooden puzzles from Liberty Puzzles might make me change my mind. They are pretty awesome looking when disassembled — the pieces aren’t your typical jigsaw puzzle shapes, but instead relate to the final puzzle image. The puzzles come in a wide range from vintage posters to Asian art and Impressionist masterpieces, plus they can even make custom puzzles with your own picture.

Happy Monday All!

These landscapes shots of beautiful Canada are leaving me so excited to visit there again! Canada is one of those places that I keep wanting to go back for more. Such a beautiful place, and I’ve seen so little of it.

ImagineNations

Given how often we discuss maps, it should come as no surprise that we are also big fans of globes; I’m kind of loving these decoupaged vintage globes from ImagineNations. Oh, and if there is something you’ve been dying to see on a globe, she makes custom commissions.

Happy Monday All!

Really neat shots by 14-year-old photographer, bmenton (sorry, don’t have the photographers real name). There is something about photos of animals out in nature that gets me every time. Especially when they are of red foxes! Amazing!
