Friday Finds 9.30.11
In this installment of Friday Finds from the staff of Dwell, a hodgepodge of events, fonts, fashion, and photographs to end the week—and start the weekend—on a good note.
Printed Matter's annual book fair is taking place this weekend. I went to it last year and it was pretty much the be all, end all event for those who love books, magazines, journals, and anything that's printed on paper, for that matter. National and international publishers, dealers of antique books, rare titles, artist zines, and more will take over MoMA PS1's floors starting today. Even if you don't buy anything (which is mighty tough) it's definitely worth going to.
This ain't new, but it's funny. For when you really, truly care, say it in llama.
This week I traveled to Switzerland to visit the Laufen factory. In the town of Laufen, the ceramics maker showed off its new products and materials as well as its impressive manufacturing center. Check back soon for a full photo tour!
Leah: Wedge Sandals by Form & Fauna
I'm crazy about these multi-colored wedge sandals made by Form & Fauna. Not only are these sandals stylish, they're sustainably made, with scrap materials from biodegradable synthetic materials and second generation Alder wood. Plus, they're manufactured in a U.S.-based workshop. Check out all the other styles they have to offer online at Echo Park Independent CO-OP. There is something for everyone!
