Ghost National Forest, screenprinted pop-up book - kim ku

We’re suckers for accordion books, paper-cut, and whimsy. So at the LineWork NW festival, when we saw this little accordion from New York based illustrator/designer Kim Ku, it was a must-have. Check out her Etsy shop, where this item, and a few others are available.

For one more along these same lines see our earlier post on a Shelby Arnold project.

We’re big fans of Chicago poster outfit Sonnenzimmer. They’ve teemed with Thrill Jockey to make these 2 prints (one, two) in editions of 50 to make you feel old in the event of Thrill Jockey’s 20th anniversary.

It’s been a very Sonnenzimmer year for us, as we got to meet them at Flatstock in Austin. We’re super excited about their upcoming Warp and Weft. We also came across and “accidentally bought” this excellent print on our spring trip out to the Marfa Ballroom.

We set foot in an Urban Outfitters for the first time in years, and found a stack of their posters on sale for cheap. Ubiquity.

Oh, and speaking of their Kickstarter book, they posted an excellent reading list about where they’re at with their abstract ideas. The post is for “backers only”, but we think the list is worth the leak. From Sonnenzimmer , for your beach reading:
