Quodlibet by Sebastian Gievery & Katja Spitzer

Quodlibet, No Brow, Katja Spitzer

Of the twenty-six letters in the English alphabet, the letter “Q” seems to be to be the quirkiest as it masquerades as a “K” sound, squiggly tail and all. To gain a better understanding and appreciation of all things “Q” related, Berlin based illustrator Katja Spitzer and writer Sebastian Gievert have teamed up to create Quodlibet – a carefully curated illustrated encyclopedia of Q-words inspired by French novelist Georges Perec, who made a book centered around letter “E”.

Quodlibet is not your everyday encyclopedia. In fact, it’s quite the opposite as it primarily features colorful and often comical illustrations of queens, quacks, Quentin Tarantino, and other quandaries. Without any question, do yourself a favor and grab a copy from No Brow.

Børge Mogensen & House Industries

borge mogensen

I’m a big fan of Danish furniture, so I was excited to hear about House Industries latest project. Originally designed by Borge Mogensen, House and Stellar Works have teamed up to put a fresh spin on a modern classic. Made of oak and sapelli, these cabinets have been inlaid with a Neutraface Slab slashed-o pattern. The cabinets are available in two sizes and will debut this week at the International Furniture Fair in Milan.

Robert Hunter

robert hunter

Robert Hunter is an extremely talented young illustrator based in the UK. His work centers around an untraditional notion of color and negative space, thus creating a style feeling all his own. His creations tell such intricate and beautiful stories, all without having any text to lead the viewer towards any conclusions. Robert just completed a limited edition comic and artwork for the band Young Colossus, which turned out beautifully.

Laura Meseguer

Laura Meseguer is a type designer, letterer and designer from Barcelona, Spain. I love the immediacy of her work and how ably she navigates between play, function, legibility and form.

Rumba (below), especially, catches my eye as it has a wonderful calligraphic, hand-lettered quality to it. You can peruse more of Laura’s work on FontShop and Type-Ø-Tones.

Oscar Bolton Green

The portfolio of Oscar Bolton Green is sort of a wonderland of strange and dreamy imagery. I love the simple forms that he works with, but how he manages to create complex scenes and stories out of beautiful bright shapes. He also experiments with lettering, that fits his style of illustration perfectly—slightly amorphous and experimental. If you find yourself loving Oscar’s work as much as I do, he has a book that has just come out, Bird Beak Book, as well as a shop so that you can buy some of his lovely goods.
