Things

Posted by James Cartwright,

Things this week is leathery, spiky and Detroit-based – it also comes with great wrapping and excellent grips. Sound like your cup of tea? ‘Course it does. Let’s do this Things!

Cactus Joshua Wiley

This week we had a visit from talented Kingston illustrator Joshua Wiley, who was kind enough to gift us with a few copies of his new zine Cactus. You’ll be startled to discover that the content is entirely cactus-based, featuring some rather lovely portraits of Joshua’s favourite specimens. A welcome break in a busy week.

Wrap Magazine: Winter 2011

If you’re not familiar with Wrap then the run up to Christmas is probably an ideal time to get acquainted. The magazine focusses on the practice of a wide variety of creatives, from ceramicists and sculptors, through to illustrators and animators. Backed onto each spread is a massive A2 sheet of wrapping paper featuring the work of the aforementioned creatives. It’s seriously nice. This issue contains features on illustrator Oona Brown, textile designer Donna Wilson and author Max Fraser.

Cairo Divided Jason Larkin & Jack Shenker

Following the Arab spring earlier in the year the Middle-East is undergoing an unprecedented amount of change, politically, socially and economically. Photographer Jason Larkin has produced this photo-essay on the capital where the uprisings began, chronicling Cairo’s architectural developments – the abandonment of traditional Arabic stylings in favour of westernized designs – and unstoppable expansion. Accompanying his deftly-captured imagery is an actual essay by writer Jack Shenker, containing illuminating insights from Egyptian politicians, psychologists and property developers. It’s written in Arabic and English, which is nice.

Boat Magazine

Boat studio are a nomadic bunch, not at all keen on staying put in their London residence. So now and again they go on a walkabout, taking their studio around the world to experience what other cities have to offer and producing Boat Magazine in the process. This edition focuses on the much-documented ex-industrial wasteland of Detroit, a city that’s developed a reputation for being a ghost town over the last few years. But there’s more to it than that, as Boat reveals. In fact Detroit is on the up, with a burgeoning creative scene and some formidable sporting teams, it seems to be a city with an incredibly promising future.

Gropes Nonusual

We love bikes. We love leather. We REALLY love stuff for bikes that’s made from leather. There’s just nothing better. So we’re frothing at the mouth and quivering in our ergonomic cycling shoes at Gropes, the first in a line of bespoke cycling accessories from Nonusual. They are magnificent, and we’re pretty sure they’d look good on any bike, old or new – so much so we’ve been fighting over who gets to take our set home.
