here’s a bit of fun for you on this fine Saturday. maybe you went out last night, had a few drinks, or smashed two bottles of great wine over dinner (yes that’s what we did). in which case it’s highly possible you’re in the mood for a big juicy burger right now to get your weekend going. Fat & Furious Burger is a project by french graphic designers Thomas & Quentin, of Studio Furious, who started putting together elaborate burger ideas during their lunch breaks.

sadly the only time i ever buy a magazine these days is when i am about to get on a flight and i know i’m going to be without wi-fi for the next few hours (also, i recently dropped & broke my trusty kindle so now that option has flown out of the proverbial window seat). i’ll get 2 or 3 lady mags from the usual selection at the airport book store, and then flip through them – slowly – so as to pass the time. but inevitably i find myself sitting there with nothing to do because, well, they’re just not my thing. there has been a quiet resurgence of intelligent print magazines in the last few years, most started by sets of like-minded people who are unsatisfied with what’s currently out there, and many are self-funded in today’s print-is-dead-all-hail-the-internet climate. this is exactly what Roxanne Fequiere (editor-in-chief) and Allison o’Shea (creative director) set out to do with Golly. and, together with an amazing team, they’ve succeeded.
Lucy Hilmer is a photographer, filmmaker and poet who has filmed and photographed, at regular intervals, the ever changing lives of herself, her family and friends and documented them in multiple long-term series. Birthday Suits, where she photographs herself every year on her birthday wearing nothing but her white Lollipop underpants, shoes, and socks, made me tear up a little. it is just extraordinary.
