These edge notebooks from HAY are simple and superb. Gold edged pages are all a solid color. I personalized these for some special folks last month, writing names in white with splattered ink.
These are images from Beijing native, Ji Zhou’s series titled “Civilized Landscape” created using books, maps and photography to produce these urban and topographical landscapes.

Cameron Moll‘s letterpress masterpiece of type is not just a beautiful representation of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. “In the artwork, there’s a metric tonne of hidden text: names of the architect, engineers, and laborers that perished; shops and restaurants in Brooklyn; and other items with relation to the bridge…The time spent designing the artwork was more than 300 hours, but the time spent doing research—trips to Brooklyn, studying the bridge, selecting typefaces, thoroughly annotating The Great Bridge—is easily double or triple that amount.”
You may notice the typo in “Brooklyn” on the images — there’s a funny story to go along with that too. Check out his website dedicated to the project and explore options for purchase. Bravo Cameron!
