Form: Internationale Revue Covers by Max Bill
I stumbled onto these beautiful covers for Form magazine designed by Max Bill in 1959. I’ve never seen these before, so really excited to discover them. You can check out more Form cover designs on the excellent site Design Reviewed.

Nespor Typographic system
A lot of great work here by Utrecht-based designer Daan Rietbergen, but I’m particularly into this grid-based typographic project.

Hrot Typeface
Inspired by 1950s Swiss and German airline posters, Hrot is a sans-serif type family designed by Vojtěch Říha of Superior Type. All of the weights are stunning, but that Black weight is 🔥. And the way the lowercase “e” and “a” just hug each other… so good.

Hirayama Fireworks Catalogs 
Love these minimal catalog cover designs from the Hirayama Fireworks company dating back to the 1900s.

Color Classification System
This color wheel was created by French chemist Michel Eugène Chevreul in 1882 and featured in Amédée Guillemin’s Les phénomènes de la physique. Read more about the illustrations in Guillemin’s books.

The French Dispatch Magazine
One of the things that makes Wes Anderson such a fantastic filmmaker is his attention to detail. For his latest film, The French Dispatch, Anderson worked with Erica Dorn and Javi Aznarez to create a fictional magazine.
“We were working on the logo and The French Dispatch bureau set simultaneously, and Wes suggested we try the signage on the facade as the masthead, including the flashbulbs inside the letters and the scaffolding that holds it in place.”

Everson Museum of Art Building
The Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, NY is a minimal geometric structure made of concrete mixed with a local granite aggregate. It was designed by I. M. Pei in 1961.

Oliver Bryce Yates Photography
Found these gorgeous photos by Oliver Bryce Yates, and I can’t seem to find any info about him or larger versions of his photography. I think this is his site, and you can see more of his work here, here, and here.

Film
Thom Yorke & Stanley Donwood A Conversation
An insightful look at how Thom and Stanley developed and evolved Radiohead’s visual aesthetic.

Food for Soul Refettorio Felix
Refettorio Felix at the St. Cuthbert’s Centre is a community kitchen that sustains and supports vulnerable and socially-isolated people. The project is a collaboration with Chef Massimo Bottura and his non-profit organization Food for Soul. The film highlights the project and gives a peek at the warm and inviting interior designed by Studioilse.

Music
SSLEEPERHOLD Ruleth
The 2013 release of Ruleth is the only one by SSLEEPERHOLD, but it’s a gem. This electronic album by Austin resident José Cota is full of dark synth-based sounds reminiscent of 80’s horror film scores. Apparently, the guys in SURVIVE had a hand in this, so if you’re into the Stranger Things score, then you’ll definitely dig this. Favorite track: Ashes.
