Things Part I

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Just so you’re not impressed into paralytic submission, Things this week is split into two. This, part I, is a making up for a temporary tool predicament (I found the camera!) and will be featuring Wills and Kates (every week until the big day?), missing dogs, Norwegian landscapes, smutty type, and a literary review about advertising with a catchy name.

Missing Pets Vol. One Grimsrud & Showalter

“There is a dog that may be wandering around lost on the common” half sounds like a the open to a Yeats poem but actually is a rather eloquent example of some lost dog signage. Grimsrud & Showalter are the ‘Curators of collections’ and have put together a nice, maybe sad but best of found posters that will tug on the metaphorical dog leads of your heart.

Wills and Kate are getting hitched! Alice Pattullo

Alice has kindly reminded us it’s not all about vomit and scones (mutually exclusive) on the forthcoming marriage of Wills and Kate “People’s Princess” Middleton with a celebratory crown and poster. Both screen printed with typical excellence that we can now associate Alice with. Great likeness too (it’s in the teeth).

Gratuitous Type Elana Schlenker

A lovely printed, honest publication, Gratuitous Type is a “pamphlet of typographic smut” and as such, features some great, fan-like musings on people and projects that play with form and context for type and its many faces. Lovely centrefold featuring covers from Cuba’s golden era.

Strom: Drawings and Paintings Nigel Peake

These repetitively marked and coloured landscapes are what Nigel Peake remembers whilst in an attic in Ballytrustan or on the floor of an apartement in Brooklyn, from his week in a cabin in Norway. If his memories are as richly textured and beautiful as these I either want to visit this cabin, or sit in his brain. Havn’t decided which.

Adliterate Review Richard Huntington

Adliterate Review is that rare beast, a demi-broadsheet chock a block of unapologetic text (some justified “unparralled narcissism”) that you can happily read without your brain falling out your ears. It is generally good when someone bothers to put a provocation or hypothesis about something as huge as advertising into words so that the rest of us can limpet our disagreement or grow our own opinions off it. Shows he (Richard) gives a damn, and he sustains that caring with the original blog. (Also great).
