Mmm, some of my favourite paper crafts...
These first by my very talented friend Ceal Warnants. They are beautifully constructed entirely from paper which has been printed with images of wood veneer. I believe she is also available for commissions.
And these next via Ffffound, by Kaka Ueda who makes rather lovely papercuts.

Few pics from the brilliant exhibition of works by Alan Aldridge currently on at the Design Museum, London.
Well worth a visit! The exhibition is choc-full of Aldridge's book jacket designs, record sleeves and children's book illustration including an installation of enormous cardboard cut-outs of characters from his book "The Butterfly Ball".

Oh how I do like a Haruki Murakami novel...
I just finished reading his "Dance, Dance, Dance", and it was wonderful, as dreamy as ever... Maybe think about Gabriel Garcia Marquez set in contemporary Japan...
Here is an article with "Ten facts you need to know about Murakami"
And here is an ooolld article about his book Kafka on the Shore from The New Yorker.
And if you like the idea of reading some of his stuff, but are feeling the pinch from the current economic situations, you could try Read It, Swap it... a website which allows users to search and swap books they fancy reading for only a postage fee.
Old news, but I was going to post this ages ago...
I rather like the Moscow Metro map as a piece of design. The city itself is arranged roughly in districts in concentric circles, with the central point being marked by a plaque outside of Red Square, from where all roads are said to originate...

I stumbled across this site today, which is a project called Mission Abandoned. They have a nice line in atmospheric photographs of abandoned derelict places, including a set taken inside Robins Cinema, where I used to watch films when I was a kid.
