To Think Deeper Magazine

£16.00

Quantity
To Think is a journal exploring thoughts and conversations on visual culture This journal and each conversation within it began with the same question: “How do you go deep in a shallow world?” By placing some of the deepest thinkers in conversation together, the dialogue itself branched off into something much deeper and provoked many more questions about visual culture, the power of place and everything in between This first issue of the magazine contains conversations with two icons of “product” experience: legendary perfumer FRÉDÉRIC MALLE and epochal British designer TOM DIXON; a dialogue about “memory”, the alchemy of place and curation with acclaimed chef SKYE GYNGELL and travel writer DAVID PRIOR; and a meeting of minds between two “cultural” curators ;Miami entrepreneur and real estate developer CRAIG ROBINS and the visionary Chief Creative Officer of Design Miami, RODMAN PRIMACK To Think aims to see what happens when we place deep thinkers together — deliberately forcing new collisions and contrasts that allow us to all think differently about the world and how we see it

On Photgraphy by Susan Sontag

On Photgraphy by Susan Sontag

£9.99

Quantity
Susan Sontag's groundbreaking critique of photography asks forceful questions about the moral and aesthetic issues surrounding this art form Photographs are everywhere, and the 'insatiability of the photographing eye' has profoundly altered our relationship with the world. Photographs have the power to shock, idealise or seduce, they create a sense of nostalgia and act as a memorial, and they can be used as evidence against us or to identify us. In these six incisive essays, Sontag examines the ways in which we use these omnipresent images to manufacture a sense of reality and authority in our lives

Home Futures: Living in Yesterday’s Tomorrow

£29.95

Quantity
The ‘home of the future’ has long intrigued designers and popular culture alike. Whether it was the dream of the fully mechanised home or the notion that technology might liberate us from home altogether, the domestic realm was a site of endless invention and speculation. But what happened to those visions? Are today’s smart homes the future that architects and designers once predicted, or has our idea of home proved resistant to real change? Explores today’s home through the prism of yesterday’s imagination. Alongside original essays by leading voices in the field, this richly illustrated book features more than 200 colour images, organised in six thematic sections exploring privacy, the smart home, compact living, self-sufficiency, nomadic lifestyles and the idea of the home as an idyllic landscape. Ultimately this book proposes that we are already living in yesterday’s tomorrow, just not in the way anyone predicted The designers, architects and artists featured in this book include:Absalon // Ron Arad // Archigram // Archizoom Associati // Atelier Van Lieshout // Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec // Andrea Branzi // Joe Colombo // Michael Craig-Martin // Dunne & Raby // Yona Friedman // Buckminster Fuller // Richard Hamilton // Hans Hollein // Haus-Rucker-Co // Industrial Facility // Jan Kaplický // Frederick Kiesler // Mark Leckey // Linder // Enzo Mari // OpenStructures // Gaetano Pesce // Ugo la Pietra // Alison and Peter Smithson // SO–IL // Ettore Sottsass // Studio Makkink & Bey // Superstudio // Andrea Zittel With original essays on the home and its future by:Deyan Sudjic // Adam Greenfield // Pier Vittorio Aureli, Martino Tattara and Marson Korbi of Dogma // Sarah Kember // Emilio Ambasz // Jing Liu of SO–IL // Justin McGuirk // Eszter Steierhoffer

The shape of the Nuage vases made its first appearance in the oeuvre of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in 2002. Reminiscent of a cloud, the motif was originally produced as a plastic shelf module that can be grouped into clusters or large-scale configurations. Eight tubular cavities pierce the flat surfaces of the modular element while also defining the form's outer contours For the Nuage vase, the designers executed the cloud motif in extruded aluminium profiles of varying lengths. The cavities in the basic form are now positioned upright, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that can be used for the artful arrangement of flowers and grasses. The undulating surfaces, with an anodised finish in various colours, produce an attractive interplay of light and shadow. Thanks to their precise outer contours, the vases can be fitted together to create entire 'cloud formations'

£75.00

The eight issues of Octavo, journal of typography, published in the 1980s and 90s, have acquired cult status. Copies sell for exorbitant prices and only rarely become available. If you want to find back issues, be prepared to pay big money. But it’s now possible to ‘own’ all eight issues and to enjoy them at actual size in a brand-new Kickstarter-funded 384pp book – Octavo Redux The book has been designed and edited by two of Octavo’s original designers and editors – Hamish Muir and Mark Holt. And, as with the journals themselves, the book uses high-end production techniques to faithfully reproduce the original publications The book also documents covers and spreads from the full-scale working prototypes made by 8vo during the design process for each issue of Octavo. Subscription cards and subscription card mock-ups are shown at full-scale. The notorious eighth issue of Octavo (the ‘interactive’ CD-ROM) is also documented, including its packaging, as well as the content itself through a selection of actual-size screenshots (640×480 pixels) The pre-desktop computer production processes employed in the early issues of Octavo, are documented by showing selected type specifications and proof mark-ups for in-position page-make-up typesetting systems. These often resulted in long ‘discussions’ with the typesetters, conducted via bike messengers, red pen, highlight markers and Tipp-Ex. Through extensive captions and annotations, the book shines a light on this now lost practice of visual engineering – where maths mattered Spreads of the printed issues are created from high resolution RGB photography – one image capture per page – made from the original untrimmed press sheets. This allows perfectly flat, squared-up montages of left and right pages to be brought together as spreads in the lay-flat binding used in the production of Octavo Redux. In the spirit of Octavo, there are many production surprises in store for the reader of Octavo Redux. In addition to the wide gamut repro, which better represents the true colours of the original issues than everyday CMYK, two special inks are used in the book – metallic gold, and in the uncoated sections of the book, a soft neon yellow Other material considerations include foil blocking on reflective mirror paper, for the hard cover and end papers, and the books come wrapped in a translucent self-coloured trace jacket, in keeping with the original issues of Octavo As Caroline Roberts, in her book Graphic Design Visionaries, has noted: ‘Named after an abbreviation of the book-production term ‘octavo’, 8vo saw themselves as outsiders; they were intense, outspoken and did not identify or engage with the design community. They were pragmatists, obsessed with detail, believing that expression should be a result of the design process, not the motivation for it.’  Although 8vo disbanded in July 2001, Muir and Holt have reunited to design and edit Octavo Redux. They have applied all the ingenuity and close attention to detail that went into the journal to the design and production of this book

It’s been four years in the making. Letraset: The DIY Typography Revolution is the first comprehensive history of Letraset, the rubdown lettering system that revolutionised typographic expression The book tells the Letraset story from its early days as a difficult-to-use wet system, to its glory years as the first truly democratic alternative to professional typesetting The book also looks at Letraset’s present-day revival amongst a new set of admirers who recognise the typographic excellence of the system’s typefaces The book comes with a gatefold Letraset timeline. It has an introduction by Malcolm Garrett, and features in-depth interviews with Mr Bingo, Erik Brandt, Aaron Marcus, David Quay, Dan Rhatigan, Freda Sack, Andy Stevens and Jon Wozencroft Essays by Colin Brignall, Dave Farey and Mike Daines – all key members of the Letraset team – provide expert insight into the rise of Letraset as a typographic and commercial powerhouse. A central essay by Adrian Shaughnessy examines the typographic and cultural impact of the system The book’s design is by the Spin team of Tony Brook and Claudia Klat. It uses many rare specimens from Letraset’s past – catalogues, press ads, mailers, storage units, and of course, sheets of classic Letraset typefaces

National Theatre Posters: A Design History is written and compiled by design writer Rick Poynor, and offers a comprehensive survey of the theatre’s best posters from the 1960s to the present day For more than 50 years, the National Theatre has used posters to promote and give visual expression to the enormous range of productions that it stages. While other major British arts organisations also utilise posters, it would be hard to find in-house relationships with designers as continuous and stable as those seen at the theatre Across the decades, the National Theatre’s poster designs have been the responsibility of just five individuals: Ken Briggs, the theatre’s first graphic designer; Richard Bird; Michael Mayhew; Charlotte Wilkinson; and Ollie Winser An enormous range of graphic approaches has been used – typographic, illustrative and photographic. This diversity of expression reflects the designers’ temperaments and skills, the fashions of the time and changing conceptions of the most effective way to communicate graphically with the theatre’s audiences National Theatre posters, when viewed collectively, comprise both a history of design at an institution central to British cultural life, and a case study of the way the poster as a medium has evolved in Britain in the last half-century

Ben Bos joined the founders (Wim Crouwel, Benno Wissing, Friso Kramer and the Schwarz Brothers) from the outset. Together and individually, they set new benchmarks for typography, identity design, cultural design, exhibition design and product design The expanded edition of TD 63–73 is a unique insider’s account of Total Design’s golden period. It contains hundreds of images from the TD archive, and in Ben Bos’s text the reader is given a personal history of a design group that remains as important today as it did when it launched in 1963

Notes on Design is a comprehensive series of mini-essays brought together to create a panoramic overview of what designers do, and how creative practice works Each one-page note thoroughly reflects on a design practice, showing professionals what they can learn from expert designers for innovating in their own field. These reflections are based on the knowledge and insights that have been gathered in over fifty years of design research, and on the author’s own experiences as a designer, researcher and educator This book aims to open up key design practices for general use through thoughtful reflections. Each one-page essay deals with a particular aspect of design as a creative practice, and offers some foothold for understanding All the pieces can be read independently, but they are bundled together in chapters to deal with a topic more thoroughly and completely. The issues raised are made very concrete by linking them directly to experiences – the essays should ideally be read at the moment you have encountered a specific issue yourself, and are open to contemplation
