Gift Ideas


It's Christmas time, so we all should be buying stuff. I was out wandering through my favorite bookstores yesterday and came up with some gift ideas I want to share with you.

bok_kingsize_big.jpgFor your little brother or sister:
King Size
A project about Tags, DIY-Craft & Subcultural Globalization
By Adams
The cardboard covers were cut by hand. This thick volume shows you how to make a fat marker of your own and is full of pictures of people writing graffiti from all over the world.

gocco.jpgFor any zine-maker, or for me, because this thing rules:
The Gocco Silkscreen Kit is a mini silkscreen making kit. It takes no time to burn their little screens and it's nowhere near as messy as the real deal. The company is going out of business and these are getting harder to find. Some people started a Save Gocco campaign. Check there for updates and look on ebay for the kits. And when you find one, send it to me.

vito.jpgAlso for me or your coolest family member:
0-9 The Complete Magazine: 1967-1969
Vito Acconci and Bernadette Mayer
Collection of the 7 issues of 0 to 9, Vito Acconci and Bernadette Mayer's mimeographed magazine. Their aim was to explore the relationship between language and the page and the contributors list is full of major artists and writers of the time, including Sol LeWitt, Adrian Piper, Dan Graham, Robert Smithson, Yvonne Rainer, and the editors themselves.
