Book lovers, this is for you:
In 1927, the Italian Futurist artist and designer Fortunato Depero created a monograph of his work unlike anything that had been seen before. Called Depero Futurista, or “Depero the Futurist,” it is also known as The Bolted Book, because it is famously bound together by two large industrial aluminum bolts.
Filled with bold typographic experimentation, daring layouts, and featuring work in nearly every artistic and design medium, it is universally recognized as a landmark avant-garde example of the “book as object.”
Long unavailable, The Bolted Book is now coming back to print. Designers & Books, the Center for Italian Modern Art in New York (CIMA), and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Trento and Rovereto, Italy (Mart), which houses the Depero archives, are collaborating to publish a new facsimile edition, which will be the first exact copy of Depero Futurista ever produced since its original publication 90 years ago.
You can help reissue The Bolted Book as it appeared in its original form and return this resonant piece of design history to the present.
The Invisible Dog is my work home. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful community of artists and creators. (My businesses run out of the ‘office space’ side of the building) Every year Lucien, the director of this cultural hub, runs a Kickstarter to help keep the lights on.
In a city where everything is making room for shiny new condo buildings, the Invisible Dog is a refreshing reminder on how important is to create an affordable studio space for artists.
If you, just like me, appreciate what Lucien is doing on Bergen street, help me support his Invisible Dog Kickstarter Campaign!
Scale Denim aims to make jeans with different inseam and waist sizes. So no matter how tall or short you are, you will have a pair of jean that perfectly fit your body through the waist, thigh, knee, and calf. As a tall woman, I endorse this idea. But, oh wait, currently only available for men. Ops! Ok then guys, support the Kickstarter and help get this idea off the ground.
