Monocle Magazine

Monocle Magazine, issue07, originally uploaded by pullpusher.

Picked up this issue of Monocle Magazine awhile ago and can't get enough, although 3 issues have since passed. Carrying a hefty price tag of £75 per year, I'm going to have to stick to a few issues a year, but it's well worth it and if you can't get a copy, their website has tons of great video articles (even if you aren't a subscriber) that will keep your little mind tantalized for hours.

Magazines & Coffee

Somehow, every trip to KC bypasses a little coffee shop in the TWA building, Magazines & Coffee, but we finally made it around to take a looksy. Although on first inspection I was a bit unimpressed by their selection (considering their name includes "magazines", I was bubbling over with high expectations)...upon a second look I was able to find some elusive prints that I had only admired online, like Fantastic Man (along with several other non-Maxim style men's magazines worth checking out, if only for design) and Purple Magazine. And if your 4 year old is like my 4 year old, he can be kept busy by browsing the selection of gamer and science magazines. With so many magazines out there, they can't possibly please everyone, but they are off to a good start.

Published by Colophon: International Magazine Symposium, this gem of a book, We Love Magazines, is a must have for designers, or just fans of printed matter.

Also available at Die Gestalten Verlag.

Jeff Wall Exhibition

If you happen to be in San Francisco, visiting the Jeff Wall exhibition would be nice, but if you're land locked like me, you'll enjoy SFMoMa's online interactive exhibition.

Came across this 1929 Russian silent film poster and thought the design was worth sharing. The film is showing at KU's Spencer Art Musuem in February.
