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

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.
