What was the inspiration behind Mark Sinclair's piece? That looks intriguing!
Hi – there's a book coming out on this in March. I met up with the author who travelled throughout Japan taking pictures of the best manhole covers. The steel one in the spread above is from Disneyland Tokyo but there are thousands of brightly coloured ones all over the country (each relating to the prefecture it's in)
NIce work in Monograph
Props to Patrick and everyone at CR, this issue is oozing with substance, attitude, style and confidence. Think I might even consider renewing my subscription…
I heart Monsieur Apeloig
Very good. Love this cover :)
So...the Monograph insert of our February edition CR arrived with the foil stamp centered instead of in its usual top left corner position. Not to mention the fact that it was on the back cover and upside down!
Anyone else get one of these? http://www.flickr.com/photos/kjbro0me/4343591021/
