I kinda missed out on all of these and the only reason why it drew my attention is because in this fifth installament of jeffstaple’s 1-2-1 series we get to watch an intimate playout of graffiti legend Futura. In this interview they uncover his (Futura’s) thoughts on street culture and why he feels he has the need to continually reinvent himself as an artist.

All Gone 2009 is now available at select retailers accross the world (maybe at Magma) though inding a copy anywhere is close to improbable. There are only 1000 prints so very limited however you can buy it on the All Gone website where copies are still available.

Though All Gone is a perfect history guide to all the biggest stories of streewear and culture over the past 3 years. If you’re like me and cant justify the price tag for something that will become pretty much ancient within a years quarter check their scaled down version in a browser friendly eBook. What is a bonus is that they’ve also dropped the last 2 years worth on the website too.

Heres a few pics from All Gone 2009. It does look good still!!

Now you can probably already tell that I am a big fan of really colourful things, I like books that really stand out visually but I also especially like books that use your imagination, change your paridigm but also books that deal with spirituality. Its clear that this is a perfect gift to me and if you are like me them I’m sure you’ll appreciate Spirit Animals by Stefanie Iris Weiss.

Abduzeedo make this synopsis. “Long ago, many cultures regarded certain animals as reflecting a person’s true essence, as a link between this world and the spiritual realm. Today, this cosmic connection has become a cultural touchstone for a new generation. This illuminating book explains how to connect with and channel the unique powers of 40 different spirit animals. Featuring a menagerie of creatures—from the wise owl and crafty fox to the tranquil turtle and bold lion—each entry provides a detailed description of the animal’s personality, mythology, and innate powers. Helpful text provides readers with clues and meditations for discovering their own spirit animal as well as information on how other animals can be called on to help with specific desires—from overcoming fear to finding true love.”
