Flavorwire explores books that inspired fashion designers.
- At The Faster Times, an overview of several art shows on the Lower East Side, from Maria Petschnig’s reactions to a “culture of sad” to the “suggestive tactility” of the group show New Shadows Old Legs.
- At The Quietus, some thoughts on William Basinski’s A Red Score in Tile, inspired by a James Elaine painting, and recently reissued on CD following a limited-edition LP: “[A] welcome insight into the genesis of a unique praxis, and it remains one of Basinski’s most uncompromising works.”
- If you’ve been following the debate over electronic editions of books, there’s a very good chance that John Scalzi’s Electronic Publishing Bingo Card will make you laugh. Or, possibly, cry. Or both.
- Ray Fawkes’s forthcoming graphic novel One Soul looks to do some interesting things with narrative. Combine that with hat-tips on Twitter from the likes of Hope Larson and Matt Fraction, and our interest is very piqued.
