Things

Posted by It's Nice That,

Things is back (a requirement of all weekly features) and it’s full of good stuff. For your delectation this week we have one beautifully printed poster, one ludicrously entertaining book, one compendium of canny advertising, two zines in one and an obsessive’s guide to typesetting. Enjoy!

Superstitions Alice Pattullo

Love this. Alice’s screen printing never fails to please and make me itch with envy. She plays brilliantly with her love for/expertise in folklore – a subject that reflects in her style and colour schemes – this poster is an A to Z of superstitions; A is for Allan Apple, Z is for Zodiac. Aside from the obvious niceness of the finished, three colour article, there is a daily update on her blog each letter and its ethereal meaning.

Press Here Hervé Tullet

If you’re in the market for an interactive experience that doesn’t require batteries and an internet connection then look no further, Hervé Tullet’s Press Here has arrived to entertain technophobes everywhere. Tap, stroke, shake and blow on the coloured dots (you’re not too old for this) to change the illustrations on each page. Printed matter has never been so interactive; and at £9.99 it’s much cheaper than an iPad. Take that Apple!

Guerilla Advertising 2 Gavin Lucas

Back in the good old days of commerce you could sell anything with some casual misogyny and a pithy strap-line. Nowadays we media-savvy consumers demand more from our advertising, like mobile interactivity or a flash-mob. Yeah flash-mob! Gavin Lucas’ Guerilla Advertising 2 takes an in-depth look at the inventive ways in which companies have tried to hawk their wares to us in unexpected circumstances – from giant thongs strung up in trees to billboards made of cash. If it doesn’t come with an immersive viral campaign I ain’t buying it.

War & Peace Heuberger

One zine? Good. Two zines? Great. Two zines packaged together that fold out and join up into one giant poster? Freakin’ awesome! Printed in a variety of colours that include, but are not limited to, red and blue, this delightful edition presents two illustrated volumes that explore the finer points of war and peace. Thanks to the good folks over at Heuberger for dropping this round (you really can’t beat a little face-to-face zineswapping action).

Graphic Design, A Guide To: Cameron Vincent

Graphic Design, A Guide To: is design porn in its purest form. A sparse ten pages of concise typesetting basics it’s an essential bit of kit for any young designer and a welcome addition to the library of even the most seasoned professional. Don’t know the difference between a teardrop terminal and a bilateral serif? Neither did I, but I do now and it feels good.
