I’ve always enjoyed the films by Charles and Ray Eames, especially the Powers of Ten. Like all their films, it is visually beautiful but there is also a campyness to the narration and direction that makes it especially fun. This was the first film my oldest son saw when he was little, and he instantly fell in love with it. The numbers were mesmerizing and the concept of moving from up close to far away to close again was riveting.
The latest issue of Small Magazine is up, and I’ve written a short piece about the film for the small spaces column. You can read it here (it’s not listed in the table of contents). I also made a little flip book to go along with the article. It doesn’t seem to be working on their website but you can download it by clicking on the image below and make your own. It works best if you print it out on cardstock.
I really like the idea of online magazines and they seem to be more and more common these days. Another really wonderful one is Mankind Magazine. Mankind Magazine, which is produced by Erin Loechner from Design for Mankind, is an online publication dedicated to independent designers. The latest issue is all about handmade, and Erin was kind enough to include me on page 29.
And thank you all so much for the well wishes about Stitch Magazine!
