“The thing I hate most about advertising is that it attracts all the bright, creative and ambitious young people, leaving us mainly with the slow and self-obsessed to become our artists. Modern art is a disaster area. Never in the field of human history has so much been used by so many to say so little.”—Banksy
“A major cause of mankind’s problems began 75 million years ago,” the Times wrote, when the planet Earth, then called Teegeeack, was part of a confederation of ninety planets under the leadership of a despotic ruler named Xenu. “Then, as now, the materials state, the chief problem was overpopulation.” Xenu decided “to take radical measures.” The documents explained that surplus beings were transported to volcanoes on Earth. “The documents state that H-bombs far more powerful than any in existence today were dropped on these volcanoes, destroying the people but freeing their spirits—called thetans—which attached themselves to one another in clusters.” Those spirits were “trapped in a compound of frozen alcohol and glycol,” then “implanted” with “the seed of aberrant behavior.” The Times account concluded, “When people die, these clusters attach to other humans and keep perpetuating themselves.”
Coralie Bickford-Smith is a senior bookcover designer at Penguin Books. She recently got a fair amount of publicity with her redesign of a series of classic books. I know I can get these classics on my kindle for practically nothing- I also know that, having been forced to read most of these during school I have no desire to read them again. But but but- I still want these!
:)!! happy. I need to remember this next time I get frustrated with a client.
These rock! You have done gorgeous work. I cannot wait to show the team. These are all such a home run. I think as a next step I will print out on high-quality paper stock and will mount them on letramat to present at the next meeting. Will let you know when the meeting gets set so you can attend. I think you should be there to hear everyone’s comments. I know they will LOVE it.
