Hebrew Dictionary

My good friend Samantha loaned me this awesome chidren's Hebrew-English dictionary, so I shot a few photos for the blog. I love the simplified but stylized illustrations. Published in 1981, the book features illustration work from Dror Ben Dov, Yossi Gelbart, Alona Degani, and Esther Kurti.

Ladies And Gentlemen

My friend Erik Westra and my other friends Aesthetic Apparatus started a music and art magazine a few years ago called Ladies and Gentlemen. Two printed issues were produced - each came with a screenprinted cover and a vinyl EP. Here we are in 2010 and LAGMAG is now (wait for it) an online magazine! The crew just posted up a feature on So Much Pileup and my stamp-collecting habit. You can read it right HERE.

Love this logo for Atlanta's MARTA. Not sure when it's from or who designed it, but it was passed my way by Pileup reader Leon Ferri. Thanks Leon! Anyone have info on this one?

Look it up

Wezz and I were in our building's office waiting to talk with the man in charge. I glanced over at his secretary's desk, saw this super groovy dictionary, and snapped a quick photo. Wild stuff, man.

Philately Fridays: Mexico, 1970

One of my all-time favorite stamps. Designed by the great Lance Wyman, this one commemorates the total solar eclipse of March, 1970, the greatest point of which was visible over Mexico.

Do check out more of Lance Wyman's incredible graphic design work.
