The idea of painting and writing on the nude human figure is a very old one, with traditional dance forms in Japan including it and even modern art forms taking up their mantle, from films to photography. This collaboration between calligrapher, model and photograpger produces some striking images, and the process is its own meditation. Typography meets body adornement. A fashion trend I’d gladly see taking over. —S

How To Think More About Sex – Alain de Botton

Not surprisingly, the brain plays a much larger role in de Botton’s suggestions than in your typical Cosmopolitan-type fare. But it’s not all grey matter. Sex is symbolically purifying, he notes, due to the unclean nature of what’s being entrusted to another person’s mouth.

In his typically cerebral and utterly human fashion, philosopher Alain de Botton tackles the subject of sex as part of a promotion for his book How To Think More About Sex. His suggestions are both more frank and revealing while also being a lot less nuts and bolts than the usual sort of advice one hears on the subject. —S

Massimo Vignelli on Book Design

Massimo Vignelli discusses his approach to book design in a video produced for Mohawk’s "What Will You Make Today?" campaign. Video design by Michael Bierut/Pentagram.

“A grid is the underwear of the book.”

“The scale and pacing of the images is what makes the book. It’s like a film …”

In this short little segment, designer Massimo Vignelli talks about how he designs books, giving what is likely one of the simplest and most elegant introductions to design based on a grid that you are likely to come across. I love how he describes the white space around an image giving it reverence. I’ve never heard it explained quite that way and now it seem like the best visual metaphor.

The Decisive Moment – Henri Cartier-Bresson – documentary film

I started with painting, and drawing, and for me photography was a mean(s) of drawing. That’s all.

Immediate sketch, done with intuition, and you can’t correct it. …

For me it’s a physical pleasure, photography, doesn’t take much brains. Doesn’t take any brains, takes sensitivity, a finger and two legs.

… ‘Cause a camera is a weapon. You can’t prove anything, but at the same time, it is a weapon. It’s not a propaganda mean, photography, not at all, but it’s a way of shouting the way you feel.

You see, the camera, it can be a machine gun; It can be a psycho-analytical couch; it can be a warm kiss; It can be a sketch book, the camera.

Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment is an 18-minute film produced in 1973 by Scholastic Magazines, Inc. and the International Center of Photography

John Cleese on Creativity

Circa 1991, John Cleese of Monty Python fame was called upon to give a lecture on creativity. In this wonderfully serious and delightfully humorous lecture he delves into what science has learnt about creative ability, tying in cultural norms and comedic timing. Cleese lays out "the 5 factors that you can arrange to make your lives more creative".
