  1. Lumiere festival of light

    Media

    Lumiere, the third biannual festival of light, took place in Durham last weekend. I went along with my family and would highly recommend it. Lots of light installations and projections, including a huge one across the Cathedral!

    ‘Lumiere returns with a spectacular raft of installations and projections to illuminate Durham’s buildings, streets and public spaces. Local and international artists, lighting designers, and community groups will breathe new light into the city with a breathtaking series of light works.’

  4. American Illustration Annual 32

    Media

    Two hundred and eighty eight editions of the new American Illustration Annual have been released with handmade covers. Created in one weekend, the process included 45 different artists and illustrators and was overseen by creative director Richard Turley. All artists worked towards the theme of ‘nakedness’, which involved, unsurprisingly, some naked male illustrations.

  6. S. by J J Abrams and Doug Dorst

    Media

    S., conceived by filmmaker J. J. Abrams and written by award-winning novelist Doug Dorst, is the chronicle of two readers finding each other in the margins of a book and enmeshing themselves in a deadly struggle between forces they don’t understand. It is also Abrams and Dorst’s love letter to the written word. Designed to look like an old library book and containing various bits of printed ephemera such as cuttings from a college magazine and faded Spanish newspapers, postcards, letters, essay notes and, at one point, a map drawn on a napkin from the Pollard State canteen. Looks fun.
