After years of heading out to all those many bookstores and bars to see their writer friends on their whirlwind book tours, Coudal realized that, after publishing the Field-Tested Books Book, they could do that too. So they’ve planned two big readings, one in Chicago, and the other in New York City on the 28th among the palm trees and the summer breeze on the rooftop of The Delancey. More info here. See you there!
Marc Horowitz signed his name on a US map and then drove that route. Along the way he “improved” 19 towns that fell along his signature’s path. These “improvements” include starting an Anonymous Semi-Nudist Colony in Nampa, Idaho and burying an entire town’s problems in Craig, Colorado. Hilarious.
I think this counts as the “World’s Largest Virtual Signature.” Guinness if you are listening, hear THAT!

It’s been a few months now that I’ve been invited to join the fine Network of Authentic Jobs – a targeted destination for designers, developers and the companies seeking to hire them. I know of friends of mine that were able to fill their freelance positions within a matter of a day once posting on Cameron’s board. If you are looking for a new gig or for the right person to help you with your project, definitely have a peek at the Authentic JobBoard.
I am thrilled about the fact that Authentic Jobs is donating 1% of its total revenue to help entrepreneurs throughout the world. This process is being facilitatet through a site called Kiva, which lets you lend to a specific entrepreneur in the developing world. Fantastic.
Matt Willey recently recorded his decision-making on a feature design for the Royal Academy magazine. It provides a very useful insight into how page designs get arrived at, one that anyone who’s ever designed a magazine will recognize.
The rectangular tray measures 12″ W x 1′-6″ D x 1 1/2″ H and comes with a bamboo butcher block cutting board. Mae of solid corian and bamboo. Corian is indestructable, heat resistant, scratch resistant and stain resistant! It is easy to clean and soft to the touch. FTF Studio is a pioneer in using Corian for accessories and has become proficient in creating hand finished home products that result in a versatile & forgivable surface for the home, kitchen and bath. So pretty, but oh how painful is the pricetag…
This book label design by Valerie Madill made me look. Interesting concept for vast personal or big public libraries. No?
