How Acla Disappeared From Earth

The rather wonderful curator of this book emailed me this afternoon with a link to the following short film by Anna Thew. It was also good to hear that Wounded Galaxies Tap At The Window by Cyclobe will finally be released on compact disc this coming Monday. Review here. Enjoy.

Own Label - Sainsbury's Design Studio

Here's a little publication I'm all excited about.  It's not quite as odd as the last Fuel/Trunk records collaboration but I'm sure it'll be interesting. It's a book about supermarket graphics. Who would of thought Lord Sainsbury was a fan of the International Style.  Who would of thought Whole Wheat Bisk could look so typographically alluring. The book contains 208 pages of sexy packaging.  Here's a few samples. If graphic design is your kink, you're going to be a happy person. I know I will be. Many thanks to Jonny at Trunk Records for the rather wonderful scans. Own Label - Sainsbury's Design Studio 1962 -1977 is published in September by Fuel.
