Along with accidentally pulling out my headphones (which is my biggest pet hate) untangling the spaghetti mess i usually find in my pocket is a daily annoyance i often think i could do without.. seems like it might be a thing of the past! thankyouyoutube x

Ideas Shelved

Covers is dedicated to the appreciation of book cover design. They update several times a week and i visit daily, to have my say.. Save for the occasional guest editor, the blog there is updated and maintained by Fwis, a design firm based out of Brooklyn, NY and Portland, OR.

They have an annual post on the current state of bookshelves - quite apt really for a book cover design blog - and this years is a real treat. Tell me you don't want a Quad? "Asymmetry in perfect balance!"

while checking out some of these shelves my attention was grabbed by this little beautie - Heat Wave Radiator Designer: Joris Laarman, Price: US$11,119.00 (!) yeah i think that price is correct... ahem.. well its good to have dreams!


FORT DUNLOP is an interesting building with a great story behind it.. I drive past it to and from my girlfriends house on the M6 and my eye always is caught by the beautifully spaced lettering (illuminated at night) that was added to the building in 2006. Since Urban Splash got hold of the place its become quite the living space, before which it seems its primary function was to be the largest advertisement hoarding in the world. more info here.
