I’ve seen this work around town, popping up in the collectable graphic ephemera produced by the amazing Walker Art Center. What I like about Chad’s work is that he understands the skeletons of typefaces as a anthropologist would a fossilized mammal.

We recently got a tip-off about Messy Msxi from Singapore. She’s a recent grad from Central Saint Martin, School of Arts and Design. I particularly love her series of illustrations entitled An Effort Most Futile (shown above).

Zero 1,2,3

07 July 2009

Environmental and elemental art — large-scale and sky art — kinetic and technological art — random happenings and programmed events — multimedia and light shows: ZERO 1, 2, 3 documents the birth, more than ten years ago, of these new tendencies in international art. It collects in one volume the three publications created by the artists’ collaborative, Group Zero, between 1958 and 1961.

We received a note from an online bookshop that just opened up. Counter-Print.co.uk sells a mixture of new and vintage design/art books – nice collection of rare and hard-to-find titles.
