Weekend links 69


Peacock Apocalypse (detail) by Julie Evans in collaboration with Ajay Sharma.

Here at { feuilleton }, home of the curly bracket affectation, your correspondent is still surprised to find his postings the subject of a critique by Rick Poynor in the latest edition of Eye magazine, the international review of graphic design. I haven’t seen a print copy yet but you can read Mr Poynor’s appraisal here. Meanwhile, over at Design Observer this week there’s another Poynor piece about the collage illustrations of Andrzej Klimowski.

Alan Moore (yes, him again) discusses the moment when the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen gets all swinging and psychedelic. And Iain Sinclair (yes, him again) is still doing the interview rounds promoting his current book, Ghost Milk.

  1. Discovering “fueilleton” was like falling back into a feather bed after awakening too soon on a weekend morning; no apprehension, no guilt. After a hard week I feel entitled to some heavy rest and soaring daydreams.

    You, on the other hand, are anything but sleepy. Thanks for sharing a keen wit and roving curiosity. I’ll be back again.

  2. Of course you would be drawn to something called “Peacock Apocalypse”!

    And methinks that’s a pretty awesome review. Congrats! Feuilleton really is an achievement to be proud of.

  3. “So you need hardly spell me how every word will be bound over to carry three score and ten toptypsical readings throughout the book of Doublends Jined”

    No mention of Finnegens Wake without some sort of synchronicity or so it seems.

    On Saturday I attended a screening at the National Gallery of Art here in Washington DC of Mary Ellen Bute’s ‘Passages from James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake’ from 1965. The beautiful 35mm print has just been restored by the Yale University Film Study Center.

    There’s a copy of the film at http://www.ubu.com/film/joyce_wake.html if anyone wants to check out this extraordinary achievement – literally filming the unfilmable.

  4. Hi Clarke, and thanks, glad you’re enjoying it.

    Thom: That title really stood out for the way it connects to my current work in progress. Her paintings are wonderful, aren’t they?

    Stephen: I linked to the Ubu copy of that film a while back. That’s the only version I’ve seen, however.

    TJ: Thanks for the alert, some copying and pasting went wrong but I’ve corrected the link.
