In 2005, the Penguin Collectors Society held a Study Day to coincide with Penguin’s 70th Anniversary exhibition at the V&A Museum. The Study Day was a celebration of Penguin design and the typographers, artists and illustrators that helped make Penguin one of the most distinguished publishing companies. David Pelham, Jerry Cinamon, Romek Marber, Jim Stoddart, Derek Birdsall and John Miles were amongst the attendees.

This book is a transcribed record of the Study Day published by the Penguin Collectors Society. For all you grid-philes, the cover is designed by D&AD Yellow Pencil winner, David Pearson. Last week, these weren’t on the Penguin Collectors Society webstore. I had to email them about their availability. I went on their site earlier this morning and now they’re back up! I’m assuming that there are only a handful of these  left. Only 1250 published. Better act fast. Much thanks to Martin Yates.

Earlier today, Benjamin Ashman came by WK12 to talk about astrophysics—his field of study. During his visit, the mind-bending realities of time travel was a hot topic and hearing him speak reiterated the reality of how much we really don’t know about ourselves and our existence. Benjamin is currently studying at Purdue towards a PHD and will be working with NASA this summer to research how GPS can be used for space station docking. This summer, I plan going to Vancouver. There’s a big difference here.

Just some random items that I’ve picked up over the last week. I found a copy of Marshall McLuhan’s The Medium is the Message for $1.50 at Powell’s Bookstore. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the Penguin version, but still a total win for the price I paid.
