We’re absolutely thrilled that our book, Gluekit “Made Photographs” will make its debut at this year’s New York Art Book Fair. Held at MoMA PS1 and organized by Printed Matter, the New York Art Book Fair features work from an array of artists, book markers, and zinesters; it’s a seriously good time and a visual playground with tons of printed stimulus. Please stop by the Draw Down Books table (Table N26) and say hello!

Over and Over and Over

We were super honored to find out last week that we were included in Mike Perry’s most recent book on hand-drawn pattern-making, Over and Over (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008). When we saw the pre-publication announcements, we put the new book on our wish list, but lo and behold, we’re actually in it! We couldn’t be more thrilled. Like MP’s last book, Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, this one is chock full of inspiration, insight, and awesomeness from cover to cover.

You Shall Know Our Velocity!

Here’s a Gluekit cover sketch for Dave Eggers’s novel, You Shall Know Our Velocity!

It’s a departure from the other book covers we were sketching out early last year, but we felt this book deserved something a little different and a little less constricted. So we went for it! For those who don’t know the plot, this novel is about a mad and grieving quest by two friends to distribute a whole lot of money according to a half-baked but thoroughly complex plan after the death of a close friend. It’s a sad, weird book that trades in emotion and oddness. It’s a book that’s also about the best-laid plans going awry, and a general unsticking of the characters in the reality they occupy. There’s a rapidity and unraveling rhythm to the plot, which inspired both the smudging of Eggers byline, and the haphazard use of taped-up type. One sequence of scenes in particular has stayed with us: the friends, in Africa, desperately trying to rid themselves of money, attempt to tape money to animals, people, and passing objects. It’s all inspiration…

Gluekit’s loving bright yellow these days!
