... these are a few of my favorite things, October-November 2014

Some stuff I particularly enjoyed ...



Konstantin Kalynovych / The Alchemist.  I'm happy to own a print, meticulously done.  Artist's site: kalynovych.net/


Koralie (Metroplastique) / Mineral Talisman Earrings from "Collection Composite."  I had to get just to admire.  More here: metroplastique.com/


Catherine Prats & Kimihito Okuyama / Librairie Galerie MiniMa.  I've been dreaming of a shop exclusively for miniature art and books.  Edition L'atelier du lierre: librairieminima.com/pages/l-atelier-du-lierre/l.html

Subcultural Girl.  Ballpoint pen, 2014.

Phlegm / Totems.  Artist's site: phlegmcomicnews.blogspot.com/

 

I recommend his book of pen and ink drawings, which includes a nice poster of 'Civilisation': phlegm.bigcartel.com/product/phlegm-book



Michel Leiris / Nights as Day, Days as Night (1988).  Original: Nuits sans nuit et quelques jours sans jour, Paris: Gallimard, 1961.


Another dream journal ... Georges Perec / La Boutique Obscure: 124 Dreams (2013).  Original: La boutique obscure. 124 rêves, Paris: Denoël/Gonthier, 1973.

 

And another of sorts ... Alfred Jarry / Days and Nights, various from Atlas Press.  Original: Les Jours et les nuits, roman d'un déserteur, Paris: Mercure de France, 1897.



I'm also looking forward to 2 upcoming releases from Taschen: Winsor McCay: The Complete Little Nemo and van Eyck: The Complete Works.


Kimika Warabe / とびだす! うごく! -たべもの, Tobidasu! Ugoku! Tabemono (2008).  My sister gave this mini pop-up book to my nephew, and he loved it.  I must say, it is a very cute book.



Panos Cosmatos / Beyond the Black Rainbow (2010).

 

Susan Sontag / Promised Lands (1974).


Asif Kapadia / The Warrior (2001).
