Edith Ault


Edith Ault's 'The Daily Newsfeed' is a 40-page risograph illustrated newspaper that celebrates the surreal, amusing and rapid dissemination of everyday news through social media.
"Inspired by Twitter headlines accompanying a composition of tweets and comments, forming a stream of unconscious collaboration underlying the absurd and often worrying impressions we leave in response. After all, where is the fun in reading the news from one point of view?" Edith Ault

Chunqing Zhou





Chunqing Zhou had an interesting graduation show called; 'Please keep your receipts'.

"Receipts are probably the most common things in our lives. We get them everywhere and every day. They record our preferences, our habits, and our daily life. However, the text and images on receipts fade as time goes on, just like the pleasure and satisfaction gained from shopping. I've expressed my understanding of shopping in a material world through printing receipts, as a way to reflect on the concept of the temporary enjoyment of shopping." Chunqing Zhou

Roger Duvoisin XVIII






 'Nubber Bear' by William Lipkind, illustrated by Roger Duvoisin, published in 1966. As followers of this blog will know I adore Roger Duvoisin's work and I always love to find books of his that I haven't discovered before.
Nubber Bear, as ever, is full of wonderful expressive line and great colour combinations.
