Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.”

Orkney Hood

The Orkney Hood gives a fascinating glimpse into Iron Age fashion. The herringbone twill weave mixes sophisticated Danish elements with simpler sections made from the brown wool of the Orkney moorit sheep. Experts think it’s a Viking garment remade by Scottish weavers; an early example of a global design being recycled locally.

I’m transfixed by the level of detail that have gone into these illustrated letters. The little people seem pretty happy in their typographic environments. The designs are from various alphabet projects by Jing Zhang, based in East London.

"Be Fortunate That Complexity Exists To Be Explored", 2014, pressure print. We designed and printed this piece for NEUE FORM, an experimental typography exhibit in St. Louis. These seemingly alien letterforms are based on Antique No. 7 by William Page (1870). The typeface was re-drawn, and split into fourths. The fragmented rows of each letter were then repositioned, flipped or rotated 180 degrees within the original dimensions of that letter to create a completely different (or different-looking) letter. For example, the F in Fortunate is a reconstruction of the letter P. The O is a reconstruction of X. R is a K. And T is still a T. Every letter in the sentence is unique. Future forms.
