Erin Smith, an Australian artist, developed a fascination for typography during her university years some years ago. She says, “I was looking at the intricacy of the engracing of a smith and wesson pistol (on the computer, not my own) [and] I thought about this image in relation to typography then started using the computer to create the image. I did a series of these for a project.”
Her work reminds us of our own posters. The major difference between our art pieces and Erin’s is that we don’t deconstruct text so fans of the book can read their favourite passages in the original structure and form that the author had intended. In other words, Erin puts more emphasis on typography in her art, whereas we put more on passages.
What I really like about her work though is the originality in her subject matter. She doesn’t simply use typography as a gimmick to illustrate uninteresting things.

Many times it is difficult to view religious books as just books; they can often seem inspirational and yet frightening at the same time. Many of them are also the stories of ancient times which can make the tales all the more fascinating. National Geographic recently released this article about one of the most well- known religious books of all time: the King James Bible. The article features a little history, a little mystery, and a lot of the intrigue that generally arises when topics such as these are addressed. It is a great look into the global career of the King James Bible and provides facts that I didn’t even know! Enjoy!
Haruki Murakami’s latest novel 1Q84 is apparently a resounding success and has been selling like crazy since its first release in 2009. Of course, we didn’t get an English translation released in North America until relatively recently, so to us this book is still perhaps a new release. Murakami has long been viewed as one of the great writers of our time and is known for other works such as Hear the Wind Sing. Recently, thestar.com released this article discussing Murakami’s works both past and present and also enumerating some of the plot of 1Q84. Of course, the premise of this novel is too complicated to attempt to understand in a single article, but perhaps it will inspire you to read the book! Enjoy!
