Swedish IKEA Cookbook

9th Dec 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

I like Ikea.  I mean, yeah, it’s difficult to navigate / get out of there, and their naming scheme is hilarious (parody by George Hrab – “adult language”).  Whatever the detractions, I like them due to their excellent sense of simplistic style.  Well, they released a cookbook (in Sweden only for now).  It’s gorgeous…

Check out more photos from the cookbook over at Craftzine.com.

Also, as reported on All Good Naysayers, student Jax de León did a senior graphic design project on Sufjan Stevens‘ 2005 album, Come On Feel the Illinoise, called Illinois: Visualizing Music.

Check out more about Illinois: Visualizing Music (link).

Speaking of Sufjan, Asthmatic Kitty is trying to call Osso’s upcoming album a Sufjan Stevens’ release.  Ha!!!  We’re on to you guys… come on, when is Suffie’s real next album coming out!? :)

OK, I know… Osso’s Run Rabbit Run album is a “real” album… and it’s gonna be rad as hell… but you know what I meant.
