1. This was made as a test of my 13mm f1.5 Elgeet lens for my BMPCC. And what better subject for a vintage lens than vintage cameras and film processing.

  2. This is the first episode in a series exploring the process behind some high-quality items and the dedication their creators put into their craft.

    Chris Dekerf designs and creates custom made-to-order bicycles. He starts with a design unique to each customer and produces a frame that's hand made in his workshop every step of the way. The dedication to his craft is obvious and even after 25 years in business he is always looking for ways to improve the frame-building process.

  5. "JOE SACCO IS A GENIUS."—Chris Ware

    From Joe Sacco, "the heir to R. Crumb and Art Spiegelman" (Economist), comes a monumental, wordless depiction of the most infamous day of World War I: July 1, 1916, the first day of the Battle of the Somme. THE GREAT WAR is a 24-foot black-and-white panorama, and in this video Sacco explains his process and his understanding of one of the bloodiest days of the twentieth century.

    THE GREAT WAR is printed on heavyweight accordian-fold paper and packaged in a deluxe hardcover slipcase. The set also includes a 16-page booklet featuring an essay about the first day of the Battle of the Somme by Adam Hochschild and original annotations to the drawing by Sacco himself.
