The Big Book of Pussy

21 Nov
There has been the Big Book of Butts, the Big Book of Boobs and the Big Book of Penises. So, it was enevitable that Taschen would release the Big Book of Pussy. I love the description for it on Taschen’s website:

The cat’s out of the bag

The body part series wraps up with the origin of us all

Cheating Type

16 Nov

Often, when someone cheats on you, you can picture the two of them at it. All the kissing, licking, positions and shit they did. Well Luke Lucas (great name right?!) has visualised cheating in a whole new way. He has created one of the most disturbing, yet funny typefaces I’ve seen in a while. Check out the “excuses” he’s used to show the typeface, then have a look at the close ups. Knida weird… But I like it…

Have a look at his other typefaces and work on his website.

A Dyslexic Girl’s Guide to Books: Tart Cards

15 Nov

 

 
 

Hello. My name is Hells and I’m dyslexic…

but damn do I love a good book! 

In my last year at art school I began making my own Tart Cards. For anyone who doesn’t know what a Tart Card is, it’s a small, post-card-sized piece of paper that prostitutes put in telephone boxes to advertise their services. Before you go there, no I was not making tart cards to advertise my career change to becoming a hooker. I made cards that, instead of advertising girl’s sexual “talents” they advertised their intellect and expertise in whatever field they worked in. 
 
 
 
Peep my cards below:

So, obviously while doing this project I came to learn a lot about the origins of Tart Cards in London (because yes, they are unique to LDN). It wasn’t until a month after said project was finished that I came across the most perfect book on the subject: “Tart Cards: London’s Illicit Advertising Art” by Caroline Archer & Mark Batty.

I know right? Sod’s law that I scrawl the internet, books and documents to try to get as much info on TCs and just when I don’t need it no more, I find this gem in the book shop opposite my office! 

Regardless, I got the book. Firstly because it was only £6, and secondly because I have a true, deep love of Tart Cards, and this book has everything you will ever want to know about them. Plus, a lot of information about the dark underworld of the London sex-scene; it’s history, origins, techniques, doggy dealings, the lot!
The good thing about this book is it is stuffed full of images. Now, for a dyslexic, this is like giving a fat kid the golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s factory. There is nothing better for me than a book that has more pictures that words, and the words it does have are easy to follow, interesting, and informative. 
To top it all off, once you’ve learnt all about Tart Cards, and seen pretty much every card that’s ever been made, there is a handy little glossary at the back of the book that teaches you the meanings of technical terms and vernacular phrases that are commonly found on London’s tart cards.
What could be better for a dyslexic than a dictionary huh? 

 

 

Buy & enjoy here. xx

 

 

Super-Heroines Wear Nike

14 Nov

I get very bored of lookbooks, it’s very rare that I find a lookbook that actually inspires me and makes me want to buy the clothes. One think I never get bored of however, are comics (yes, I know I’m a geek! I own it!). So the lookbook for Nike’s Autumn 2011 collection really took my breath away. The lookbook is a collaboration between Nike and two female comic book artists; Jan Duursema & Amanda Connor entitled “Make Yourself a Superhero.” Which is meant to take the focus off of the celebrity athlete and put it on the every day woman.
