Yale University Press has released an iPad app version of Josef Albers’s influential book, Interaction of Color. Designed by Potion, the app features archival video of Josef Albers in the studio and classroom, videos of practicing artists, designers, and architects discussing how they use color, and 63 fully interactive plates.
Looks like it’s really well done. I’m looking forward to it.
London designer, Hana Tanimura, has created this beautiful set of prints based on the international maritime signal flags. I’ve always loved the minimal and geometric design of the signal system, so it’s great to see them available as high-quality prints.
Each flag is a Giclée print on 310gsm Hahnemühle German Etching paper, in an edition of 20, each signed and numbered. The prints are available in A2, A3 and A4 sizes.
Sorry for the long silence. I was working on a big pitch and it consumed all of my time. Back to regular posting.

These incredible photos are part of an editorial series shot by Vienna based studio, atelier olschinsky, for Nevertheless Magazine. The color tones throughout the series are breathtaking.
Armin Hofmann—Farbe is an exhibition at Galerie Susanna Kulli in Zurich that features a portfolio of silkscreen prints where Hofmann focused and played with color. The prints were created from 1989 to 1999, and they’re an interesting departure from the work he’s famous for. If you’re in Zurich, this would be a great exhibit to see.
Stunning minimal photography by Akos Major.
