From PingMag, a Tokyo-based magazine about “Design and Making Things”

In Tokyo, you can wear these every night – in other cities, there will soon be Carnival. How about false eyelashes by Kakuyasu Uchiide! The brilliant Japanese head make-up artist of renowned Shu Uemura cosmetics will give you beauty obsessed people a tour through his current false eyelash collection for instant transformation into a mysterious Egyptian princess, an extravagant bird or a magical wood elf… We are not being silly here. PingMag spoke also to Uchiide about the perfectionist standards of beauty in Japan.

A biopic of music legend Ian Dury is heading to the big screen…

Here’s a classic reminder of his brilliance:

From Sky News:

Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll stars Andy Serkis, the actor best-known for playing Gollum in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

He told Sky News he is thrilled with the reception so far.

“The family came and watched the film after it was put together,” Serkis explained.

“And we got a lovely email from Ian’s daughter saying Ian would have loved this, and he would have sat there and laughed, and then coated you all off with great affection.

“So hopefully we’ve done him proud,” he added.

March will mark 10 years since Dury succumbed to cancer, after a brilliant career with The Blockheads, that produced hits like Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick and the classic album New Boots And Panties!!.

The movie charts the post-Punk years of the late 1970s as well as flashbacks to Dury’s Polio-addled childhood.

Serkis’ performance has already won him a British Independent Film Award nomination.

ABC3D — Excellent pop-up book of the alphabet

From the lenticular cover that changes with the angle of your hands, all the way to the Z, ABC3D is as much a work of art as it is a pop-up book. Each of the 26 dimensional letters move and change before your eyes. C turns into D with a snap. M stands at attention. X becomes Y with a flick of the wrist. And then there’s U… Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come.

MARION BATAILLE is graphic and book designer who has never before been published in this country. She lives in Paris. This is just a hand-made mock-up of the actual book which publishes in Oct. 2008.
