things…

I found this great magazine-turned-blog called things magazine that examines, well, things.

things magazine was originally founded in 1994 by a group of writers and historians based at the Victoria & Albert Museum/Royal College of Art in the belief that objects can open up new ways of understanding the world.”

My favorite  project going on right now is The Pelican Project, a collection of books published by Pelican from the 30s to the 80s (I think having to do with the color blue, but they don’t really explain).

The eighties sucked for design, btw.

Some of my faves:1963 Culture and Society - 1780-1950 - Raymond Williams
