Harper's minimal realism

The Golden Book of Biology” came out around 1961 and it has some of the most amazing illustrations ever.


Charley Harper, the man behind the art, described his unique visual style as “minimal realism,” capturing the essence of his subjects with the fewest possible visual elements. Very inspiring!

The Wall by Peter Sís

“I was born at the beginning of it all, on the Red side—the Communist side—of the Iron Curtain.”
Through annotated illustrations, journals, maps, and dreamscapes, Peter Sís shows what life was like for a child who loved to draw, proudly wore the red scarf of a Young Pioneer, stood guard at the giant statue of Stalin, and believed whatever he was told to believe.
Until he discovered a world full of possibilities.


The Wall, Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain,” a children's book for all ages, proves that creativity can be discouraged, but not easily killed. A masterpiece!

Typefaces for a good cause

Create/Reject is based in the UK and specializes in design, typography and art direction. It is also responsible for the book Fifty Designer’s Current Favourite Typefaces, which is not just a pretty nice idea, but also a very kind project since 100% of the price goes to UNICEF.

The Other Side

The idea behind the book “The Other Side” just fascinates me. Each page has a corresponding opposite, so we get to see the “two sides of the picture”. Here is a door, what’s on the other side?

Hungarian Istvan Banyai, artist and designer, uses his characteristic stylized illustrations to surprise us with the answer.

Between The Lines

"A Jalousie (French for jealousy) is a window that one can see through but not be seen; barriers that allow us to observe the world without being invited to the table."


Humboldt, Between The Lines is an editorial project for “Urban Jealousy,” theme of the First International Roaming Biennial of Tehran and I am absolutely in love with it.

It is usually pretty disappointing to watch a film based on a great book, but this time I am having some faith. Blindness is a movie adapted from the masterwork “Ensaio sobre a cegueira (Essay on Blindness),” by Nobel-Laureate Portuguese José Saramago. It is also directed by Academy Award-nominee Fernando Meirelles, director of one of the greatest films ever made, “City of God.”


To make the story a little bit better, prodigious, sweetheart, breathtaking and compatriot Gael García Bernal is also starring.
Will be in theatres until September 19th this year.
Click here for the trailer.

Excellent Book Covers and Paperbacks

Very hard to design, book covers pretty much communicate the idea behind the book on one single page and in the spite of seconds. Good ones are unforgettable and also a great source of inspiration.


Smashing Magazine, willing to provide you with some creative, expressive and appealing book covers, came up with 61 Excellent Book Covers and Paperbacks. Enjoy!

French Marion Bataille came up with ABC3D, a pop-up book as much as a work of art.

This is just a hand-made mock-up of the actual book, but the good news is that it will be published in October this year.
One of those books you want to keep forever.

J(erome) D(avid) Salinger (1919-) Uncollected Writings

This is a great resource for a lot of out of print JD Salinger stories.

Not wasteland, but a great inverted forest

An adventure to color!


This is quite possibly the best thing i have seen this year. Yes that's right. Brandon Bird has taken America's best crime drama, Law & Order, and turned it into an edge-of-your-seat thrill ride of a coloring book.

Click here to browse the pages. And then buy one.

Thanks Meryl.

In almost every pictures

The guy Erik Kesselkramer from flat Holland does some good books. For example this one. He found a collection of hundreds of photos taken by a husband of his wife during the years 1956 to 1968 on a flea market in Barcelona. Why not make a book, he thought. Sometimes it's so easy.

In Almost Every Picture

I bought a very lovely book of photos from the Photographers Gallery in London. That book was composed by Erik Kessels. It is one book in a series sharing the same title, "In Almost Every Picture." Each book focuses on one particular subject. This one is of animals in the wild taken by a motion detecting camera. Here are some of those pictures.

War and Video Games


From Neural.it

In the controversial debate about the videogame role in social acceptance of violence, the military power avid interest in the field is not anymore a secret. Furthermore the mediatic videogame-like aesthetic debuted during the Gulf War in early nineties has become the norm, and pushes in every new conflict the bloodless screen-based interface of a real human mass murdering. Ed Halter wrote this documented book letting the reader navigate through the slim territories of the elegant game attack strategies' genesis and the invasive subtle marketing of the senseless murders and destructions' institutions.
