Calligraffiti - The Graphic Art of Niels “SHOE” Meulman’ is an impressive publication that presents a large selection of typographic works by Niels Shoe Meulman arranged in a uniquely simplistic manner; every spread presents two interacting visuals on its opposing pages. This repeating duality makes this book much more than just a collection of the artist’s best work; it unveils the basis of all graphic art.
The print finish on Calligraffiti’s cover is particularly eye-catching. A strong white masthead made with custom lettering by Niels Meulman is pressed into thick, black stock. The white type is then finished with a cello glaze to maximise its shine and contrast. There’s no paragraph on the back cover explaining who Meulman is or what the book might include. Instead, you will find 12 of Meulman’s most interesting logotypes. This decision is somewhat unconventional, as it leaves the content of the book fairly unknown to the average reader. However, it lets the work do the talking and invites those who are curious to open the book for more.

What’s the endgame here, what’s the fucking point? Why be a horrible person on anon then fake nice?
Just don’t be a horrible person. End of world problems.
my favourite thing to do is watch people completely own homophobics on facebook

Illuminating the Holiday Season in Japan
In Japan, Christmas lights, called “illuminations” (イルミネーション) in Japanese, go up as early as mid-November and can remain on display as late as March. Businesses, main streets and big parks go all-out with spectacular LED reveries and exquisitely decorated Christmas trees for passersby to experience. The illuminations play an important role in creating the festive and romantic mood of winter in Japan and they are more astounding with each passing year.
The Kobe Luminarie (神戸ルミナリエ) in Kobe, Japan, is one of the most striking displays every year. Kobe hosted its first illumination festival in December of 1995 in memory of the Great Hanshin Earthquake which struck the region in January of the same year. The Italian-designed illuminations were donated by the government of Italy, and the soft, solemn glow of the hand-painted lights became a symbol of remembrance and hope. The Kobe Luminarie was originally meant to be a one-time event but, with the strong request from local citizens, it has become an annual event now its 19th year.
