2015...

posted in Shop updates  at 10.16 PM from Bastia . Corsica / France listening In This Shirt - The Irrepressibles

2015 by Mr Cup

 

What better moment than a flight to wish you a happy new year 2015. In transition, leaving a place that I know... to go to a place that I don't and expect it to surprise and inspire me !

 

I'm not going too far away, just in Corsica. But it is to work on a beautiful commissioned project started in 2014.

 2014 was the year of the Niépi magazine, the letterpress calendar, and many other beautiful projects ...

2015 will be the year of Mr Cup magazine !

The idea stuck in my head for years, I do not reveal the name, one thing at a time. It will be based on all that I present on this blog since 2006: creativity, crafts, design, coffee and especially the places and people that inspire me (and you) ! Inspiration, emotion, creation...

But before that, I am working on a new ebook to sum up this beautiful (but difficult) year  2014!

 

Thank you for it, you make it what it was in one way or another. I wish you a wonderfull and creative 2015 !

The calendars are now ready and I am so pleased by the result. The front cover designed by Joe White is full of details that sublime the letterpress printing process. We finalize it last week with Studio Pression and I visit him to print the glow in the dark front cover, that works even better than what we expect !

Music Albums of 2014

posted in Music & Movies  at 5.51 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France

End of year is always a good time to take stock ... This is the time to do the musical balance of this year, 2014, just hours before the midnight supper! Here are the albums that came out this year and that affected me. New in 2014, I bought the albums on vinyl!

 

So here these albums without order of preference !

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 02music2014 mrcup makingof 03

Damien Rice. My favourit faded fantasy : beautiful album, he took time to do it, but what a result! The cover is also superb.

Piers Faccini Vincent & Segal. Songs of lost time: the first joint album of these two long-time friends. THE voice of Piers and the cello of Vincent, just magical. Was also a great a concert in a small chapel lost in the Cevennes for me this year...

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 04music2014 mrcup makingof 05

Fink. Hardbeliever : I follow Fink from its first album and this is my favorit album, beautiful evolution in style, a lot of power... The Peligrim title is probably the song of the year for me.

Ben Howard. I forget Where We Were: second album of this prodigy with captivating titles ... with its sublime vinyl edition.

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 06music2014 mrcup makingof 07

U2. Songs of innocence :  beyond the disturbance at the "free" launch of the album, the songs are strong and beautiful ... but I still can understand the choice fof the sleeve, despite all the explanations given by the group!

Coldplay. Ghost stories: like U2, I imagine it must be difficult to creat with such pressure and attention given to your work ... but Codlplay is doing well, with good sound and a quiet and pleasant album ...

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 08music2014 mrcup makingof 09

Ray Lamontagne. Supernova: very good album to new sounds.

The many are one: Compilation of Piers Faccini label that as a friend who will recommend books, a selection of the artists he appreciates and asked them each a title ... personal preference for the title Ben Harper and especially Jasser Haj Youssef !

 

music2014 mrcup makingof 10music2014 mrcup makingof 11

The secret life of Walter Mitty soundtrack: Like the film, the soundtrack makes you want to live life to the fullest! Special mention under "Step outside" José González.

Elbow. The take off and landing the of everything: still unknown in France, another superb album of the English group ...

Excellent work! However, I think the B.O.I.D project dragon is too similar to the Wales national dragon, even the gold coins look...
