A Bookplate is a small print or label pasted into a book, often on the inside front cover, to indicate its owner. The earliest known marks of ownership of books date to 1391-53 BCE in Egypt.

Illustration // Thursday, February 27, 2014
Although his persona is somewhat of a mystery, we know we love the work of artist and illustrator Tea Wei. Its difficult for me not to be completely enamored by illustrated, animated gif's- especially of the dissected kind. Nice work Tea... nice work.

We have shown you the posters, we have introduced (or re-introduced) you to the artists and photographers behind the scenes, but today we want to show you some of the music we have been listening to in the office as we put the March 2014 issue together.
