The History of Typography07/05/2013
In this great little stop-motion film, Canadian designer Ben Barrett-Forrest covers the evolution of typefaces, from Gutenberg's printing press to the endless possibilities offered by modern computers. It's interesting to learn how many of the developments in type were for practical, rather than purely stylistic reasons (like italics, which were initially designed so that a typist could fit more letters on a page).

Travess Smalley: Capture Physical Presence @ Higher Pictures24/04/2013
From May 2 through June 1, 2013, New York's Higher Pictures will host Capture Physical Presence, the gallery encore of Travess Smalley's book of the same name. Cature Physcial Presence is made up of Smalley's experimental collages; studies of composition, texture, color and space which draw from various nodes in art history, in particular, 20th century modernism. Comparisons might be drawn between Smalley's work and that of Matisse's Jazz-era découpage, Picasso's later work, or Joan Miro's colorful, looping compositions.
