I just ordered some back issues – five to be exact – of IdN a couple of days ago. Great mag with diverse, new topics in every issue. I first heard about it when Nine Inch Nails art director Rob Sheridan twittered about being featured within as a glitch artist.
Picked up this little gem at the Museum of Modern Art from my visit in Stocholm today. It’s yet another good looking book from Gestalten much in the same style as their previous book Naïve – Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design which I incidently bought on a trip to Berlin two years ago. The book is filled with beautiful images with that retro modernist style to them (kind of a no brainer as its title would suggest) although, as with its predecessor, I can’t help to think that the book lacks some in the text department. It would have been nice if there was at least something from the artists featured within. Still, it’s a great flip-through with high inspirational value.
