Turntable Tuesday :: Lou Reed, Had A Coke And A Smile

Sunday was as good as any other day. GARY HUSTWIT, an independent DIY FILMMAKER based in NY and London, has released design type films for a long time now, namely Helvetica, Objectified and Urbanized. I ran across another one on Hustwit’s twitter feed, when it was announced that epic Lou Reed had died.

Beautiful fall weekend in Alba (known for the world renown WHITE TRUFFLE FESTIVAL).
Pirouette Press got the chance to partake in the parallel event Contaminazioni, showcasing editors, poets, writers and the like. Wonderful meeting, demonstrating and speaking about the craft of letterpress with Italians and tourists (who got a sneak peak at some new letterpress stationery).

Turntable Tuesday :: Munich Eatery Spaces

Italy is famous for espresso and perhaps even more so people clamoured up to the bar to have a jolt, but not so much to sit and sip as I found in Bavaria. I met up with my sunny Californian cousin and her Deutsche husband in his hometown Munich. I had never been and wasn’t sure what else to expect except for beer and sausage. And there was plenty of that with the infamous Oktoberfest in full swing, which we popped into and out of and back onto gentler and quieter streets in record time. And I mean quieter, strangely and reflectively quiet which I think these interior eatery spaces show.
