Things – Bumper Edition

Posted by Alex Moshakis,

I’ve been away for the last two weeks, baking, and have returned to what could easily be described as a mountain of printed material. To celebrate, this week’s Things is a little larger than usual, filled with all sorts of stuff I’m convinced you’d do anything to get your hands on.

Poster Tim Enthoven

When we first saw this, all of us laughed. Proper, not-just-out-of-politeness laughs. Then someone said “why is only one of them wearing shoes?” We don’t know. But these are some really lovely hairy men.

Kakt Nimhe Jesper Elving

This is ‘sound poetry’, in Danish, although Jesper Elving hasn’t used any conventional Danish words. It means, he argues, that “they should be equally accessible for everyone who knows the letters.”

Plugzine #4

Plugzine isn’t a magazine. It’s art, I guess – loose-leaf sheets you want to frame and hang all over the place.

Postcards Alan Kitching

Hand-made postcards by the great Alan Kitching, (who we went to see this week, and who, as expected, is ace).

Untitled Claire Acheson, Ken Kirton

A collection of narratives (written and visual) that challenge convention, grouped together in a way that presents (pretty much perfectly) Goldsmith’s relatively new MFA Art Writing course.

The Bourgeois Bicycle Caravan James Bowden, George Foulds

A writer and a photographer documented a “little cycle/surf adventure” within a publication whose title is, like any good title should be, intriguingly strange.

One–Nil Peter Willis

Peter Willis “didn’t know or care much about football,” and then made a suprisingly insightful zine about it.

Feel Free Live Good, Chris Coco Anthony Burrill, No Days Off

We listened to this on Monday morning. It’s Friday night music, really, and therefore didn’t go down too well. But it’s the design that counts, and the design is excellent whenever you look at it.

Praia Jane and Jeremy

Almost depressingly (for those of us in an office, staring at a screen), Praia depicts perfectly the downright relief of being sat on a Portuguese beach.

DIY Times, Issue One Nathan Blaker

There is a fat cat on the front of DIY Times’s inaugural issue. This is enough for us.

Cura. Magazine Issue 4

At first we thought this was all in Italian. One of us said something like “it looks interesting.” But the articles are printed in English too, and we can confirm that the content is also great.
