B/D Book 1 – Sneak Peak (THE PROOF IS IN!)

book1

The proof of the upcoming Book 1: Supernaturalism just came in the mail today! Though, mind you, it is but a mere semblance of its grand future manifestation(!) What you see before you is B/D, sort of at the hominid stage of evolution- breaking off from the flat computer screen and beginning to use tools to make small fires around the office. Wah wah. But while this little puppy is made of taped together color print outs (don’t mind my editorial post-it notes, either) and is without Kyle Thomas’ hand-drawn cover, it is to scale of what the future B/D self will look like.  Please note, if you will, the beautiful triumverate-ly mystical gatefold of all seeing eyes, the lack of advertising, the pages and pages of glossy art coverage….(more pictures after the jump.)

For those of you not hip to what us cool kids do in the “mag biz,” young padawan, we use this proof to double check the layout, page composition, coloring, etc in three-dimensional form before approving it. At any rate, hope you enjoy the peep show. Get excited for Book 1! What do you guys think?

Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung

Siddhartha Obama

Siddhartha Obama

 

Born in Hong Kong, Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung now lives and works in New York. His art is incredibly socially conscious, exploring and excelling in high-definition video animation, video games, net.art, digital graphics, and mixed media installations. Currently in progress is video installation “In GOD We Trust.” He envisions Obama as a reincarnation of seven spiritual leaders and prophets. Far from worshipping Obama, “In GOD We Trust” delves into the hopes and changes the 44th U.S. president promises to deliver–and the obstacles he will encounter along the way.

 

P.S. The “GOD” in “In God We Trust” is an acronym for “Global Obama Devotion.” Not our national motto!

Book Review: The Time After

cover

 

We recently received Doug Fogelson’s book “The Time After” in the mail today. One of the catch phrases on the press release is: “Temporal speculation for the post climate change era.” Heavy! Although it’s not as apocalyptic as the Popul Vuh’s 2012 world-termination prognosis, and not as, ahem, temporally speculative (in my opinion) to warrant vast assumptions about the post climate change era, there are some prismatic, multi-exposed layered photographs that time-lapsed-surfaced-ly explore the age old question of nature, man, and their relation to time. Shots of clouds and forests lay side by side by sprawling city streets. It’s certainly an interesting attempt to turn such a tired trope of amateur photography (the double-expose) into the basis for a complicated conceptual framework, though how many “heady” points on the nature of humanity the book makes, I’m not so sure.  Regardless, the book features stunning and creative print lay out and design by Tim Hartford.

Carson Ellis

Zelenoi

Zelenoi

 

To communicate both weighty (The Irish Famine, racism, war) and frivolous (clandestine love affairs with Bigfoot?) subject matter, Carson Ellis utilizes a subtle color palette and gentle linework. Her art is similar to children’s books in that the dialogue (if any) is limited, but the illustrations and their message speak volumes. And she’s married to Colin Meloy, the lead singer of The Decemberists!
