Street Art // Monday, December 15, 2014
Valencia, Spain-based artist Escif has always been one of our favorite artists who works mostly in street art. His gallery show at POW in London a few years back led us to a great cover story with the artist in February 2011. Now, we want to help Escif publish his new book, Elsewhere, which he is trying to put out himself with the help of crowdsource funding. The book will be printed a a first edition of 1000 copies, hard cover, 300 PAGES, with different textures and stocks throughout. Let's make this happen.

Juxtapoz Presents: Neil Young "Special Deluxe"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, December 10, 2014
Sometimes “special” is the only word that will do, and in the case of Neil Young’s “Special Deluxe” by Penguin Books , let’s agree that it is, starting with the artist’s observation that “being obsessive is not such a bad thing for creativity.” The book is an enchanting portrayal of the roots of Young’s appreciation for the ability to travel country roads and landscapes of the imagination.

Gift Us: The New "Criterion Designs" Book

Design // Friday, November 28, 2014
The Criterion Collection is the argument for owning "things," and by "things" we mean a library of DVDs that act like an art book collection or vinyl LP collection. They make the best films better, take forgotten cult classics and illuminate their importance, and put their carefully edited films in a historical perspective. And now, after years of preserving the concept of film, there is a new "Criterion Designs" book to capture the art behind the archival products.

Leire Salaberria’s Illustrations are Not Just for Kids

Illustration // Monday, November 17, 2014
Spanish illustrator Leire Salaberria focuses on children’s book illustration, but her sweet, narrative imagery appeals to kids of all ages. Mythology and mystery come into play, and if you look closely, there’s a little subversion here and there. Don’t tell the children.
