There is a striking contrast between the modern tools we have today (iPad, iPhone, photoshop, numeric printing) and the fact that we all want a vintage look of things. We see it in identity (several of the latest post in the identity section are very vintage look), in print (letterpress of course) but also in photos...

I do it myself so much, using my iphone all the time to shoot things and want them to look like the polaroids I have of me and mybrother when we werre young... I guess some people develop about this more than I do, so if you have books, or blog post about this, I will be happy to read them, email me links at fabienbarral(a)

The work of Jonas Eriksson for his iPad app is the perfect exemple of this :

Eli No !

My story with the Eli No ! book is special... I first talked about it 2 or 3 years ago, and Katie send me a blurb copy she does... It is the first "engligh" book I read with my daughter who loved the "Eli nooooo" idea... I am now pleased to see that the book get a real printing, and even its own web site... If he reads my blog, I would advice it for Santa Claus (by the way, if you doread it, dear Santa, I won't be against an iPad...)


The book was inspired by Katie's nephew, Parker. She said "Whenever we were together, I would say "Eli no!" — and every time I said it, he would say it too! He liked how fun it was to say and so did I. I had always wanted to write and illustrate a children's book, and I thought this idea was too fun not to do." Here come the real Eli :
