Vogue: 100 Iconic Covers

We appreciate a good magazine cover here in the Dwell offices (we spend hours picking them out, after all), so it was a pleasant surprise to receive Postcards from Vogue: One Hundred Iconic Covers published by Penguin Books. From Vogue's inception in 1892 to now, photographers such as Irving Penn and Annie Leibovitz, as well as artists like Salvador Dali and Eduardo Benito have helped produce its iconic cover images. The Vogue editors have culled their most iconic covers from the past 120 years in this compendium. Click through our slideshow to see a preview and purchase the book here.

All That's Fit to Print

After years of working as a fashion photographer, Maude Arsenault began toying with the idea of opening her own gallery devoted to photography to reunite with artists she admires or collects. At the request of clients and art buyers who wanted to purchase prints from her, she started The Print Atelier, a print gallery, in 2011. Then, this past September, Arsenault and her team launched The Print Atelier website, representing nine artists and featuring approximately 145 works in an online gallery.  Unlike other print galleries, such as Society 6, The Print Atelier describes itself as a boutique, only offering between two and 100 copies of each print. Arsenault carefully curates the artist’s works and focuses on motifs such as portraits, abstracts, nudes, and landscapes. Each print is sent to customers with a signed certificate of authenticity and the website offers suggestions on proper framing and storing. To give customers a more intimate perspective, The Print Atelier will begin airing video interviews of the artists, including Arsenault, in two weeks, and just launched a tumblr as an ever-changing inspiration board. Blurring the lines between inaccessible online website and thoughtfully curated gallery even further, The Print Atelier plans to throw pop up exhibitions throughout 2013, beginning in Montreal, Canada, this December.

DesignMarch Iceland 2012

For the fourth year in a row, product designers, architects, artists, and fashionistas opened their studio doors across Reykjavik, Iceland, for DesignMarch, a four-day roaming festival of art, design, crafts, whale foreskin cowboy boots, and late night parties soaked in birch-flavored schnapps. This year's event, held from March 22–25, attracted an estimated 35,000 people (about a tenth of the country's total population) and offered a frost-covered window into the burgeoning, wildly energetic—and sometimes wildly weird—design scene of the most northern capital on Earth.
