Stuff Matters

The Penguin art department collaborated with renowned photographer Dan Tobin Smith to create a unique cover design for Mark Miodownik’s equally unique book Stuff Matters. Here Penguin designer Richard Bravery talks us through the process.


These are behind the scenes of the making of book cover.  It took a lot of efforts to arrange the stuff.

DIABLO, the Lord of Terror

Acquired one more devilish figure yesterday.  It has a red version too, but I like the blue one.

SIPF 2014





The 4th edition of Singapore International Photography Festival is here till 30 Nov 2014.

Besides exhibitions, there are many programmes like film screenings, workshops and talks at various places.

My 1st stop is to the Open Call Showcase at NMS which shows a broad range of subject and themes.

Following are just a few of them.





ALBINOS by Gustavo Lacerda from Brazil.

Albino is a person with pale skin, light hair, pinkish eyes, and visual abnormalities resulting from a hereditary inability to produce the pigment melanin. 

"I have been researching the universe of albinos and trying to bring them before the camera, creating a new situation for those who have always been regarded as outcasts." ~ Gustavo



Shown below REPUBLIC OF PULAU SEMAKAU (A STORY ABOUT PEOPLE AND THEIR TRASH) are by Singapore artist Zinkie Aw.




The things we throw away tell much about who we are. Dustbins are, essentially, a part of one’s personal space, almost akin to a type of ‘identity autopsy’. Through photographs of trash and their environment, viewers are exposed to things owned and disowned by different people.
Below are FAMILY STUFF by HuangQingJun from China.
 One can tell the living condition of these families by looking at their possessions.

My next stop will be Festival Village at DECK.

Famous Writers' Sleep Habits and Literary Productivity

An interesting project by Marla Popova from brain pickings.

Do late risers really produce more works but win fewer awards than early birds ? ^^

The most important point, perhaps, is a meta one: A reminder that no specific routine guarantees success, and the only thing that matters is having a routine and the persistence implicit to one. Showing up day in and day out, without fail, is the surest way to achieve lasting success.
Admittedly, all these are hard works.

The visualization is available as a gorgeous giclée print, with a third of the proceeds donated to literacy nonprofit Room to Read and the rest split between Accurat (Visualizer) and Wendy (Illustrator).

DAMNED by Chuck Palahniuk





Started reading this book last nite.

As usual, Palahniuk is full of witty sarcasms.
