book cover archive

I had lots of fun flipping through this online gallery of book covers and designers! I love seeing the different versions of the same books and seeing covers I’ve never seen for books that I have read.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover? Did the book live up to the art? Leave us a comment with the link to your favorites!

Hey Liz thanks for sharing! I like how in the description it says that images can convey meaning more clearly than text. I definitely want to take a look next time I'm in the bookstore:)

wanna go glamping?

glamp3.png
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is starting to become more popular as a form of camping for people who wouldn’t ordinarily enjoy camping. There are a number of glamp-sites popping up everywhere! Pre-pitched and lavishly furnished tents, stocked ponds, and numerous other amenities are some of the features of these places. For the most part they do not have electricity or internet though – thank goodness! I think if they had internet or electricity their resemblance to camping would be pretty much gone. The New York Times has a little article about glamping here. What do you guys think? Do you want to go glamping?

I love glamping. I am a chef at a guest ranch. We have lovely cabins but are considering a few tents. If I had my own place I would do it up right. Glamp it up

I loved your glamping post. I run a reasonably priced glamping business. People seem to really enjoy getting in touch with nature without having to go through the hassle of carting equipment and sleeping on the ground. Our site is www.contentmentcamping.com if you are interested.

So pretty, and so colorful! Don’t you love these sparkleballs? It may be after the Holidays but I would still like to make one! Would you? Learn how here, and see more neat pictures here!

These are nothing short of enchanting! What fun! Thank you so much for sharing with us...I will now go hunting for leftover christmas lights and see what I can put together. Thank you for the idea; once again Free People gives us some fabulous creative inspiration. :] ~Kerrin

Mackenzie from the Free People catalog team took these beautiful images during our Farmer’s Daughter shoot. Check out the catalog and read about our inspiration for the book.

Today we received something very exciting in the mail! It was a little pet-camera, which you can clip to your pet’s collar so that you can see their view of the world! It takes a picture once a minute, and we had a blast today trying it out with Trixie, my chihuahua. She wore the camera for about an hour total and showed us the extremely large and low to the ground world of the chihuahua. Check out some of the pictures below!

Hehe! Next we plan to try the camera out on a larger doggy, we’re not sure who yet though! I will post the results!

that's such an interesting invention! wow who would've thought of that! Chihuhuas are my fav breed of dogs by the way =) P.S I don't mean to be annoying and bothersome, but I was just wondering if you've received my e-mail replying to the one you sent me earlier? I know that your mailbox is probably overflowing with messages, and it'll take a while to get through them. But I was just curious if you have gotten my reply? I was really excited that you got in contact with me and haven't heard from you since =) Thanks!

Believe it or not, these incredible scenes all are within aquariums! Takashi Amano, who many of you may already know of, (though I didn’t!) is the creator of the above aquascapes, as well as countless others. A very well respected photographer and aquarist, Takashi was one of the main people to introduce Japanese gardening styles to the aquarium hobby. His aquarium scenes are always very carefully arranged and yet very natural looking! See more photos of his stunning work (and it is a lot of hard work) here, here, and here.

I am loving these surreal and colorful designs by Richard Hogg. The centaurs totally rock my world, and the seals are so comical! There is a lot more cool art on his site, including, to my delight, a few desktop backgrounds and a (scandalous) screensaver! So right now I have an extra fun and very hirsute Richard Hogg desktop! :)

labels labels everywhere

Pruitt and I both did posts recently about different clothing label related art projects (here and here), and then I spotted this! These are custom designed Doc Martens by Fake London for the project Original Since1460.

Doc Martens asked designers across Great Britain and the world to customize boots. Some of them are completely wearable and awesome like the Chrome Hearts ones, and others are more artistic or fun, like the Barbie cars by Jason Kirk.

One look at that eating utensil family portrait and I flipped! Carolyn Alexander is an illustrator from the UK, currently living in France. Her site is full of treats for the eye, and she has a cute little blog too, if you feel so inclined!

Alissa, one of our wovens designers, showed me this cover of the Miley Cyrus song See You Again by The Mae Shi, and I am so addicted now! The Mae Shi‘s version is so catchy! The video is really funny too – enjoy!

heather -Jan 06, 2009, 10:17AM
ACK! I am hooked. I listened to this like 10 times today already!

Remember the little Electrabel ad I posted the other day? Well, above is the “making of” video that goes with it, and I rather think it’s even better than the ad itself! It was all done with lots and lots of candles, just incredible! This video has a more full version of the song too!
A note to those of you who have been wondering about the song’s artist and title: I have been searching too! I can’t seem to find it, but if I do, I’ll be sure to post it in the comments! I’m sure it’ll come out sometime!

Goedele -Jan 07, 2009, 5:04AM
Hello, I'm from the advertising agency Famous. The song was made especially for this tv-spot, so it doesn't really exist. Although, we are thinking of making an extended version, because we have had several positive reactions. If we do, I'll let you know! Goedele
Fiona -Jan 05, 2009, 7:08PM
Hey its me again! I just watched this and in the credits for music it says Sonicville... but no title of the song. I tried to look them up on iTunes and they don't have anything from Sonicville :/

Thanks to everyone that participated. I hope you all had fun:)
Check out the flickr group to see all of the gifts, and leave these crafters some comments if you love what they made. There should be more photos posting all week, so check back too.
