|:| Beaten |:|

The documentary on A Tribe Called Quest looks
like it should be out early next year.
I'll hit you up on the SkyPager when it's released.

|:| Roll 3Deep |:|

Over in Melbourne the premiere of TRON:Legacy
hosted an outdoor project by the folks at ENESS
which featured a miniramp, ipods/apps, projections
and an outcome which looked like this.

|:| Touring |:|

The Tourist is a new publication which launches
with a special edition focussing on The XX.
It's shot by Jamie-James Medina and you can
buy it here.

|:| Absoult Exit |:|

Exit magazine have once again teamed up
with Krink and Absolut too for their
newest issue cover.

|:| Dated Type |:|

I'm liking Matt W. Moore's typographic calender.
Shame it's already sold out!

|:| Run Run Run |:|

I'm not really sure I understand this video
by John Nolan for "Runaway" by UNKLE
but I like the style.

|:| Bits |:|

Last night a new show opened in Aberdeen.
"Titbits" has works by Sio Ogg and friends.
It is on in the Athenaeum and runs until mid
January 2011.

|:| Wood Is Good |:|

If I ever got back into magazine design I'd be
more than happy if it looked anything like the
superb Wooden Toy Quarterly.

|:| Board Of Breath |:|

Atlas skate shop in New York enlisted the
good guys over at Morning Breath to produce
this special edition board. Shred it or hang it.

|:| Settings |:|

Typeophile's may well have some excitement
for this film which is currently in production
about Ottmar Mergenthaler's great invention,
the Linotype Printer.
It's hard to imagine how time consuming type
setting would be with out him.
The film is being backed by donations and even
though they've met their target there's still over
a week to contribute if you like.

|:| DD |:|

It's actually taken longer than I expected for
a book like this to pop out.

|:| Neu |:|

Gestalten have another great video up which
this time is an interview with Marilyn and John Neuhart.
In case you're unfamiliar with thier work she, along
with husband John were designers at the Eames
office in the 50's which also put them in the perfect
position to write this book.

I like, but they would have been useful this week.
