Book Praline

This book might be plain looking from the outside, but it contains – hoho! – the most beautiful German book design of the year 2013, elected and published by Stiftung Buchkunst.

166400 weekends

It’s the weekend, and this 3200 year old tree has seen 166400 saturday nights. Guess this veteran knows to chill. Enjoy the break, even if you are not ‘aus dem selben Holz geschnitzt’.


We imagine Mexico City is not exactly the place to go for obscure art books and magazines, but then again, maybe now it is. Casa Bosques Bookstore is the third project by Casa Bosques, an initiative by the design and branding studio Savvy, to produce a range of objects, and recently chocolates, and, well, now [...]

Greenball by Jel


I finally watched lovely Frances Ha last night, and woke up with David Bowie’s Modern Love in my head this morning. Which is not a bad start into the new week at all.


For those who have been keeping up, you might remember Tilda Swinton’s the 8½  Foundation, mentioned in her now sold out interview with mono.kultur. Named after the eponymous Fellini film, the Scotland-based foundation was inspired by the musings of  her then eight-and-a-half years old son and dedicates itself to gifting free benchmark films to children at [...]
