Why is the main course in our in-flight meal usually swimming in sauce? And why is there never enough leg room in economy class? These, and other more serious questions regarding modern day air travel are just some of the questions addressed in a recent book from Laurence King Publishing titled ‘Airline: Style at 30,000 Feet’, written by designer and author Keith Lovegrove. Published in August 2013 as a second, ‘mini’ edition of an older title dating back to 2000, the book sets out to ”illustrate and analyse the successful – and occasionally not so successful – results of the airlines’ relentless quest to vie for attention.” Written honestly and eloquently with a healthy dose of humour, ‘Airline’ is peppered with personal accounts of travelling experiences and anecdotes. Providing an engaging if not rather causal overview of airline travel, the book describes the evolution of airline-related design in four chapters that focus on fashion, interiors, food and branding. Along with the history of commercial aviation, Lovegrove also comments on air travel from a cultural, technical and social point of view, thus putting the whole subject into a wider perspective.

Anno Badges stumbled across old magazines from the 50s & 60s in a dusty attic. They use the original magazines to create the badges, that’s why every button is unique.

Super Old Men Art Series


Super-Old-Men-Art-Series-2

Superman was born in 1933. Batman was hatched in 1939. Captain America got his shield in 1941. These guys are old, that’s where we’re going with this. And that’s also where Cairo, Egypt-based designer A Morshedi has gone with these eye-grabbing minimalist illustrations. Super Old Men showcases three of the oldest tight-wearing tough guys the world has ever seen, complete with salt-and-pepper hair, beards, and mustaches.

The Life Of A Superhero.

When it comes to photo-realistic painting, life-like works of art, or pieces that suspend disbelief, Andreas Englund’s “The Life Of A Superhero” collection stands in a class of its own.  It’s almost needless to say that his talent with a paintbrush is incredible given his style of art, but his ability to tell the story of an entire life with his works is even better.  Check the method below.

Throwback Music Video: Angie Martinez ft. Q-Tip – Dem Thangs.


irGrowing up in Jersey, Hot 97 was always the station playing in the car, or on the radio at home.  Anyone who’s familiar with New York’s biggest radio station knows that you can’t listen for too long without hearing the voice of Angie Martinez.  She’s blessed the radio with her talent for years, but in 2001, she took to making music of her own, and put out the single Dem Thangs, featuring Q-Tip.  No matter where in New York you go, if the people you’re with are of the right age, they’ll know this track as soon as it starts.

American artists Peter Lippman spent two years to find out places in forests where old cars rusts. In the series Paradise Parking photographer shows how nature takes over abandoned creations of human hands, how lying for decades old cars, overgrown with moss and ivy entangled, become a harmonious part of the surrounding space.
