The fantastic Tokyoiter project — creating cover images for an imaginary Tokyo-based New Yorker-like magazine — has now opened a shop, with prints on offer. The runs are limited though, so jump on covers you’d really like to get and frame as soon as you can, but they do promise to introduce new runs with a new selection of covers in the future.
The latest Tokyoiter cover, produced by Andrew Browne — see the original image here.
I haven’t shared any Tokyoiter covers in a while — while they were preparing for their recent exhibition, the site had gone a bit quiet — but there have been plenty of additions following the show, and the latest one is the lovely cover you see here, created by my buddy Louis-Étienne Vallée.
Lovely cover for the 44th issue of Idea magazine (from 1960). Via Gener8ion.
I really love the cover to this Muji Campsite guide book (2015) that you see pictured, designed by Norito Shinmura. What a fantastic idea to use wood grain as a motif for water (and so the kayakers). Found via Gurafiku.
Pictured, the beautiful Tokyo cityscape that my buddy Andrew illustrated for the cover of this past summer’s issue of +81 magazine. You’ll find images of the issue itself here.
