Things 2013 #12 – stationery, magazines, and books to get egg-cited about

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

I will apologise in advance that Things this weekend is not Easter themed, but it does include graffiti, lovely publications and a chance to satisfy your stationery needs. So that’s ok, right? RIGHT GUYS?

This magazine provides an interesting insight into the cultural and personal facade of design. With great visuals throughout, it reveals how designers channel their identities into their work. It also challenges the Australian stereotype. Let’s throw another shrimp on the barbie? Apparently not.

Horfée’s Imaginarium: Ain’t No Doodles

This book celebrates the work of graffiti artist Horfe. It is a culmination of his art work, which includes writing by Cédric Traverso and a Q&A. Be prepared to go on a “wild fairground-ride of whack-out imagery.” Nice.

I’ve never seen a magazine come in a box until now. Of The Afternoon have adopted a stripped-down look, and it totally works. Championing photographers, and their story behind their work, this really is a beautiful publication.

Little pages of Instagram photos greet you as you open this book based around artist Ben Jones. Each section of Ben’s work is distinguished by different sized pages, from bizarre storyboards to a series of colourful installations, it is a delight to flip through.
