A series of print ads for Dutch Book Week by Van Wanten Etcetera. This years theme was the “autobiography”, so 3D portraits of Anne Frank, Vincent van Gogh, Louis van Gaal and Kader Abdollah were created from books as centerpieces for the ad campaign. Despite how striking the ads are I have to admit that they were digitally produced, and in an age when anything can be realistically created with computers I tend to get more excited about the real thing, like the works of Julia Feld. That said, the artists for this campaign clearly spent lots of time focusing on the fine details, as even the text used on the pages came from the actual books. Digital or not, this is a lovely campaign. (via behance)

There are no words to describe the collective devastation we all feel regarding the tragic events in Japan. Want to help? A number of designers have rallied quickly to produce posters, shirts and prints, the proceeds from which will fund recovery and aid operations currently underway in Japan and other affected areas.

Toronto-based artist Allister Lee of Studio B.I.B. has been slowly amassing an enormous stockpile of black markers in an attempt to one day hold the world’s largest collection. To celebrate his halfway point, Lee has meticulously illustrated by hand all 500 markers currently in his collection and released it as a print. The 80-lb. gloss poster is only $40 over at Studio B.I.B. (via coolhunting)
