This is another great reference book, this time on canned food labels designed and used from 1877 all the way throughout Meiji, Taisho and Showa periods on canned food for domestic consumption as well as for export.
The book's small format IMHO doesn't do justice to the great design works and I really wish the book would be much larger. The dust jacket with it's faux tin-coated glitter is a prime example of a truly creative approach to book covers. Showa inspired illustrations reinforce this.

“I’m scared of our government and I’m disgusted by what little Silicon Valley has done to fight it” - Michael Arrington
Valley today represents typical nouveau riche attitude - they already have learned to properly use cutlery and not to spit on the streets, but still have not realised, that with the great power comes a very great responsibility. It is really sad to see them talking about national security, but in fact all they do is cowardly hiding behind the whole "treason" reasons scared of the slightest push from the government. "Enabler" has never been a positive term, but these guys are taking it to the new low.
Excuse all of my posts guys, these are samples for a CM based shirt I've designed. I'd love to know your thoughts and opinions on the look, colors, etc. If we get enough buzz, it would be awesome to sell them! #nexus#aosp#cyanogenmod#holo#android#design#fasion
I think that settles it and we can forget our last hopes about being saved / invaded by aliens. We can also kiss good bye any hope to see them: they are not hiding, they are just not here and we simply have nothing, that might attract them.

I agree. Occams Razor would not imperially prove or disprove this point but would be an indication to follow. Lets try. Testimony of High ranked officials, Professional specialists, children, in the millions + testimony of common people in multitude of millions of witnessing or involvement in ufology related subject + humanly impossible archaeological sites on land and under water, cultural myths of beings coming from heaven to earth interacting with humans, mass sightings involved thousands of people at a time: instead of explaining them away with swamp gas, weather balloons, mass-halusinations, slaves building pyramids with logs and vine ropes, underwater structures forming natural right angle steps from stone, we can apply Occams Razor and say: Super Advanced Aliens did it. Simplest explanation is most sophisticated.

One of the more interesting reference book on books, namely on self published underground zines in this case. First edition, limited run. A very interesting hot glue binding. Acquired on my last trip to Tokyo in some hipster popup store in Shinjuku.
