Dream Pool of Gutenberg by Onion Design Associates

Love this project ! "Dream Pool of Gutenberg" is an experimental letterpress print that tells the story of movable type from two historical perspectives. This print uses two scripts, the Roman alphabet and Chinese Characters, to represent Johannes Gutenberg and Bi Sheng, who are both credited as the inventors of the printing technique that changed the world.

Not the moon By Stellavie

You may think it is another moon poster... this is what I think when I first so it ! But this is an other creative project by Stellavie, another regular of the blog !
It’s an invitation to creative play, a call to follow the absurd, a guide for getting lost in strange ways and for being foolish now and then, to be crazy again. A humorous thought that, for a split-second, makes it through – challenging and recalibrating our perceptual habits.
NOT THE MOON really is a pancake, digitized as a high-res, film quality scan, its texture applied to a true-to-scale sphere representation and virtually photographed with a 600 mm telescopic lens using minimal shutter and small aperture. Post-production (brightness & contrast, positive/negative) has been intentionally kept to an absolute minimum. Each variant is available as a limited edition of 100 silkscreen prints, signed, numbered and coded in reference to how minor planets are formally designated: e.g. 129 PNCK, while "1" indicates the variant/edition and "29" describes the amount of pancakes it took for that perfect one to make it all the way through and into the final edition.
Always look what’s up there; and make some pancakes.
Just awesome !

EPHEMERID playing cards

EPHEMERID playing cards
52 cards for 52 weeks of the year, each with a unique design based on my collection of ephemera and feature words of wisdom.
Did you know the origin of playing cards? It was a kind of calendar, with 4 colors for the 4 seasons, with 13 cards for the 13 weeks of each season. 52 cards in total which are the 52 weeks of the year!
EPHEMERA: any items such as tickets or cards that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles.
EPHEMERIDE: French name of a paper calendar that gave you daily information all over the year. From this idea and my collection of Ephemera over the years, I get the idea of the EPHEMERID playing cards: each card comes with a unique design based of my thousands of hand-letters, invoices, bills, tickets, and photos! But I want to add something to it to inspire you. Each card will feature a word of wisdom! Take a random card and let it inspires your day!
