i’ve always loved the renegade craft fair posters, but for some reason never looked up the artist who designed them. thanks grace and mav for directed me to mat daly‘s website! i’m in love SO many of his prints and posters. i’m drawn to the shapes, colors, and imagery– i think they’re wonderful.

i received a really gorgeous book yesterday called crafting a modern world, the architecture and design of antonin and noemi raymond, edited by kurt g.f. helfrich and william whitaker. the book showcases the beautiful work of the raymonds, an architecture design duo, who were also prolific in furniture, textile, and graphic design. some of my favorite photos are of the mid-century modern log cabins– such a cool combination of styles. the raymonds designed homes, factories, office buildings, churches, and schools from 1917 to 1966, and collaborated with frank lloyd wright, isamu noguchi, and many others. more photos from the book here.

the deadly squire window display at rare device was so great. the (all fabric) gruesome thanksgiving feast included a duck with an axed off head (and yarn blood!), a gutted pig, hanging game and sausage links, and oysters with beaded algae and pearls. i bought a couple sets of screen printed cards, and a drumstick. my camera battery ran out last night, so these photos of the window are from laura su (thanks!). also, it was great to meet stella! (whose work i’ve admired for a long time!)
