Guts and Glory: The Golden Age of American Football, 1958-1978

august 24, 2011

‘In 1958, sports photographer Neil Leifer took the picture of Alan Ameche’s game-winning «Sudden Death» touchdown. This game, called «The Greatest Ever Played», signaled football’s emergence as America’s new national pastime. This title collects some the best of Leifer’s best, culled from over 10,000 rolls of film on the sport.’

Mye fint å se også for ikke-fans av football…

Jeg Liker The Hockenheimer

juli 5, 2011

«Daily news and magazines no longer want to be stored in the shelves or been thrown away carelessly. Do it the nju way: amass, arrange
and take a seat! The ‘Hockenheimer’ enables collecting magazines and newspapers and thereby creates a sustainable and personalised
furniture.»

Jeg Liker A Is For Armageddon

januar 2, 2011

‘A Is for Armageddon is your ruthlessly clever and gorgeously hopeless guide to the possible—if not imminent—ultimate destruction of our civilization and planet. From animal flatulence to economic collapse to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—from lethal genetic modification to runaway obesity, super volcanoes, and World War III—the seeds of our doom have been sown . . . and our most dire possible fates have been stunningly illustrated in this edifying and uniquely entertaining volume of inescapable horrors, fatal missteps, and the end of everything.’

A Is for Armageddon: A Catalogue of Disasters That May Culminate in the End of the World as We Know It (eller fra BookDepository)

Tenkte dette var en fin bok å sparke i gang et nytt år med…

Merry New Year!

Bespoke: The Men’s Style of Savile Row

desember 5, 2010

Har tatt runden på diverse fora, så dette er ingen shocker å poste, men fikk tatt en kikk på den i går på Norli. Skyhøy coffee table faktor, men drita fin. Kommer med fin liten guide for oss som vurderer vår første bespoke suit.

Kjøpes selvsagt fra The Book Depository eller Amazon. Sorry Norli…

Atlas of Remote Islands

‘There are still places on earth that are unknown. Visually stunning and uniquely designed, this wondrous book captures fifty islands that are far away in every sense-from the mainland, from people, from airports, and from holiday brochures.’

Tross allt, ‘L’enfer, c’est les autres’…

Wallace Stevens

september 19, 2010

‘I thought, on the train, how utterly we have forsaken the Earth, in the sense of excluding it from our thoughts. There are but few who consider its physical hugeness, its rough enormity. It is still a disparate monstrosity, full of solitudes & barrens & wilds. It still dwarfs & terrifies & crushes. The rivers still roar, the mountains still crash, the winds still shatter. Man is an affair of cities. His gardens & orchards & fields are mere scrapings. Somehow, however, he has managed to shut out the face of the giant from his windows. But the giant is there, nevertheless.’

-Wallace Stevens
