B/D was lucky enough to receive two new books in the mail today. Here’s me and Fei in the office with completely anonymous bookfaces hanging out with our boss, who happens to be a wizard and was so excited by them he conjured an ephemeral ball of light for the occasion. Anyways, the first is Keegan McHargue’s “Foibles,” from Seems Books, and the second is “Creative Space” by Francesca Gavin from Laurence King Publishing.

Anouk Kruithof’s photos are just so weird. It’s like he’s kind of playing with us and trying to shock us at the same time with simple notions…
Did anyone hear about the possibility of the United States opening its travel sanctions with Cuba? I love Barack Obama! Before the 2008 election, the Castro administration stated that they were “very interested” in sitting down for discussion with the United States, but only after there were no Bushs in the white house. No joke. He really said that. And I cant blame him, Bush has been such a dickhead towards Fidel and Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez that we Americans had no possibility of becoming friends with our southern cousins. This is a small taste of the amazing Venezuelan graphic design talent that we are missing due to our modern day mccarthyism.
