Not Now

Not Now

Author: Benjamin English Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 14/04/2020

Struggling to realize your full procrastination potential? Finally, a primer for procrastinators has arrived. Not Now is an illustrated instruction manual that teaches novice and advanced procrastinators how to dally, dawdle, and lollygag their way to expert-level procrastination. Starting with simple exercises, such as sit and pace, instructions gradually advance in complexity and futility--- learn how to write in your non-dominant hand, color coordinate your bookshelves to look like a Pantone color guide -and eventually reach master level: learn a new language by correspondence course, pack your bags, and move to another country.

Cuba Style

Cuba Style

Author: Benjamin English, Stephen Heller, Vicki Gold Levi Format: Hardback Release Date: 21/10/2002

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the national republic of Cuba. To usher in the centenary, Steven Heller and Vicki Gold Levi have collected hundreds of vintage graphics of Cuba from the 1920s to the 1959 revolution. Cuba Style recalls the days of glory when the island was a veritable resort colony for Americans and Europeans who came in search of Latino music and dancing, gambling, tropical romance, and the best beaches in the Americas.To advertise these attractions, Cubano graphistos combined elements of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Bauhaus modernism, and Vegas-style kitsch in a distinctly Cuban sensibility. Cuba Style, the first book of its kind, reproduces a treasure trove of graphics from popular magazines, packaging, posters, and indigenous products such as alcohol and cigars. It is a visual history of Cuba in its golden age as well as a wellspring of capitalist extravagance, seen here through the rare graphics of its extraordinary and now lost popular culture.
