For a article in Dension magazine about Fairy Tales and the changing nature of how these stories are told — from Grimm’s tales, to the super-scrubbed happy Disney tales through to the darker popularity of shows like Breaking Bad now. Fairy tale expert Maria Tatar also discusses how some of the world’s oldest tales help us navigate modern life.
Big thanks to Erin from Em Dash for this very interesting project!

My lifelong dream of floor to ceiling, wall to wall (almost!) books has finally come true!

The Lumio brand creates modern lighting systems with the simple goal of giving people the freedom to experience beautiful lighting wherever they are. Lumio combines laser-cut wood cover design with durable water-resistant Tyvek “pages” containing high-performing LEDs. Its unique design allows you to transform its shape to meet your needs.

I finally got my copies! Wanted to share a few more interior images, and there’s also a big foldout in the middle showing the big fight. Seeing everything in person is even better than I imagined! The care taken with the binding and printing is simply amazing. A big thank you to Marco and everyone else involved in the production!
