Unboxing Phaidon Books + Upcoming Author Events

Our friends at Phaidon sent me some books from their collection, and I made some unboxing videos.

I will be hosting two author events next Monday as part of the AIGA Design Conference.

An Afternoon with Todd Oldham

When: Monday November 9 | 3:30pm EST, 12:30pm PST
Where: Hosted by Phaidon & AIGA via Zoom on Day 1 of the #AIGADesignConf 

Join us for a conversation with master bookmaker and author of The Best of Nest, Todd Oldham. The Best of Nest is the first comprehensive collection of Nest, the magazine that revolutionized the way we look at interior space and decoration. The brainchild of artist and designer Joe Holtzman, Nest magazine, published from 1997 to 2004, eschewed the conventionally beautiful luxury interiors of other magazines and instead featured non-traditional, exceptional, and unusual environments. 

The program will include a live audience Q&A.

Special Offer! Event is open to purchasers of The Best of Nest. Purchase the book here—conference registrants, check your email for a secret, super-discount code!

$80 including a copy of “The Best of Nest” at a special discount of 20% off retail price ($100). Enter code AIGA20 at checkout
An Evening with Roman Mars

When: Monday November 9 | 6:30pm EST, 3:30pm PST

In The 99% Invisible City: A Field Guide to Hidden World of Everyday Design, host Roman Mars and coauthor Kurt Kohlstedt zoom in on the various elements that make our cities work, exploring the origins and other fascinating stories behind everything from power grids and fire escapes to drinking fountains and street signs. With deeply researched entries and beautiful line drawings throughout, The 99% Invisible City will captivate devoted fans of the show and anyone curious about design, urban environments, and the unsung marvels of the world around them. (Photo Credit: Podcast Movement)
