the infinite library

The Infinite Library is a project by Daniel Gustav Cramer and Haris Epaminonda 'The book objects (...) are each made from pages of existing books removed from their bindings and rebound as one. Some of these series loosely relate to each other via a third element: geometrical shapes abstracted from the images, computer-edited, and overprinted on the originals. The disparate image stocks become intertwined and open on one another. Having transcended any thematic organization, the loose pages now have the potential to amalgamate into an infinite number of new books. In so doing, they yield a library that defies conventional categorization.' Dominikus Müller for bb5, March 2008

Hilary Laing

I like these childish scribble scarves named Jemima and Rupert from Glasgow-based designer Hilary Laing

inside out

Susan Bradley has brought the inside out with her outdoor wallpaper, but I love these pieces bringing the outside in - creep shelf ivy and creep shelf rose.
