USATODAY recently released some more new photos from Where The Wild Things Are film, which just makes me even more rabid to see it. It says the official release date is now October 16th which is so far away. Also, does anyone think it’s rad that the kid who plays Max is named Max Records? How do people get these awesome names?!

Joris Maltha and Daniel Gross are a duo of designers that make up Catalogtree, a company which likes to highlight information about life that would probably otherwise go unseen. Through their designs they visually represent odd facts like the largest urban areas by population or the top 1000 frequently occurring American surnames split in the six most common population groups.
Last year they did the two visualizations above for SEED Magazine, featuring the amount of parking tickets incurred by foreign diplomats and an idea for a genetic profile card using chromosomal positions. Really neat stuff, be sure to click here for more info.
Really awesome poster by French illustrator and designer Fabien Barrell, Designers Are Meant To Be Loved, Not Understood, on sale in two versions, a smaller one of $36 and a larger for $49. Quite beautiful and lovely.

I’ve been in love with the new video for the song When I Grow Up by Fever Ray for the past week now, it’s so spooky and awesome. The video was directed by the amazing Martin de Thurah and has Karin Dreijer Andersson all dressed up in some kind of Nordic shaman garb, chanting and dancing around a suburban pool. Her magical powers start to kick in and the water starts going crazy, bubbling and lighting up.
The video kind of reminds of a Miyazaki film, where something normal is made somewhat magical. Martin de Thurrah definitely killed it again.

Last weekend I was having lunch and I came across this odd little book. It was sitting in the bookcase behind where I was sitting, and for some reason it grabbed my eye. I pulled it down and it had this amazing cover! The book is called A Marvelous Work and a Wonder, and surprisingly enough (or maybe not) it’s a Mormon-y bible-y kinda book.
While I wasn’t particularly interested in the inside of the book, the cover is so awesome. Anyone know what the name of the font on the cover is? I feel like I should know this but I don’t…
UPDATE: It’s Bookman Swash, thanks to everyone for letting me know.
Monika Bielskyte is a Lithuanian photographer now living in Paris who takes some really creepy photos. The photos above are from a series called COMINGGOINGSEATCHINGLEAVING and I love the really muted colors they had. The rest of her photos are pretty creepy, but there’s something very simple and beautiful about them.
Talk about a transformation! Check out Machine Project’s epic remodel, turning their average looking space into a beautiful glen filled with trees and bushes. This ambitious project was undertaken by Christy McCaffrey and Sara Newey who should be given some kind of award.
If you’re in LA go check out the new space, it’s only up until the 24th. I’ll hopefully be visiting it soon. Click here for to see more photos as well as the space being constructed.
I love taking photos, though I haven’t in quite a while, but I came across this little guy called a SuperHeadz Demekin Fisheye, and I think I’m in love. This little guy fits in the palm of your hand, so it’s portable, shoots 110 film and has a fisheye lens, so everything should look great as well. It’s also only $38.00, so it won’t break the bank either. I want one so bad!
