We looked around our book shelf today, and noticed a lot of classics that we owned didn’t have the best book jacket designs. So we looked around the Interweb to find the best versions of some of the best books we have ever read and enjoyed and continue to enjoy. Some seem to be part of a great era of Penguin publishing, so are eerily minimal, and others have just classic illustrations. From Barron Storey’s legendary Lord of the Flies cover, to the perfect type treatment for Beckett, here are some examples of excellent graphic and illustrative book jacket design. —The Citrus Staff
This is incredible… a public art project in the physical world, and then it evolves to a stop motion, installation piece on the interweb. Mobius was created by Melbourne, Australia-based design and public art installation firm ENESS.
This Panda Bear video has been making the rounds the past few months on the interweb, but its damn good, and its about ghost and skeletons that surf at night. At least that is what the video shows. And the song is good.
If you don’t know Admin Swim, that is one of the best blogs or awesome nonsense on the Interweb right now. We go there everyday, and we found this gem this morning. This is like mining for gold and striking it rich. Andrien Brody is fresh.
We are sure David Choe will be there. Tonight in Los Angeles, you can see South African legends, Die Antwoord (we have no idea if they are legends, it just sounds good), at the El Rey Theatre tonight. Bring your, um, bring yourself.
