A few days ago I received an email from Andrew Harlow telling me about a new publication he’s been working on with Sabino Aguad called Recordis Magazine. I just took the time to sit down and go through it and was I floored. It’s an impeccably curated 78-page collection of photography and other visual art including the works of Joshua Scott, Kay Jan and Shannon Rankin (all shown above), as well as seventeen additional artists. It also includes several essays and interviews, all as a free download, or a perfect bound print. You really should check it out.

I’ve never seen these incredibly candid photos of President Obama before. For someone who runs this site I can’t imagine how these have eluded me. (via how to be a retronaut)
Five images that will accompany an article in tomorrow’s issue of Time Magazine about Grant Achatz, the culinary wunderkind behind Chicago’s Alinea (recently named the best restaurant in the world ) and the upcoming Next & Aviary. Next will feature a seasonal menu based on specific times and places, for example everything might be based around the culinary scene from Sicily in 1949 or Achatz and his staff might hop in a time machine and bring back a futuristic dinner from Hong Kong in 2036. When Next opens in the next few months, the first menu will actually be Paris in 1912, and the top image above with the pigeon’s leg is the first image I’ve seen from that menu: from Auguste Escoffier’s 1903 cookbook, Pigeonneau à la St.–Clair. Learn more about the dishes above over at Time. (via @gachatz)
