Dave Eggers’s Book of Illustrations: It Is Right to Draw Their Fur

November 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Dave Eggers has just published his first collection of illustrations, It Is Right to Draw Their Fur.

Printed in time to coincide with a gallery show in San Francisco, this is Dave Eggers’s first collection of drawings. Most of these works are of unusual mammals, most often accompanied by slogans with ancient, heroic, or just plain odd overtones. This 14″ x 19″, full-color package is a combination of 26 large-sized prints and an accompanying booklet.

I think there’s a chad joke in here somewhere, but I’m too tired to find it. Jill Sylvia takes old ledger books and meticulously eviscerates them square by square, page by page, until she’s left with a delicate ledger skeleton. Papercraft meets process art. (via triangulation)

Mind Design Finds Inspiration in Zines for Branding Znips Salon

September 30, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Hot identity work for London salon Znips by mind design.

The Znips logo is inspired by locks of hair and hand-cut lettering we found in a 80s Punk fanzine. As part of the interior we designed an art piece made from chopped books curled into strands of hair resembling the curved shapes in the logo.
