Crepuscular Aesthetics



Happy new year all from the veritable winter wonderland that is Warszawa. There will be no posts here again for a little while, because I'm working on a short Zer0 book on Pulp, finishing those blog posts that I never completed in the form of a cash-in book for the cash-in reformation.

ALSO ALSO

If I might, errm, 'crowdsource' for a moment, if anyone has a title better than either/both Razzmatazz or The Joy of Pulp, please please let me know in the comments...

In the meantime, here's some things made earlier:


Reviewing a book on Jim Stirling's Red Trilogy in Icon, one of several reviews I've written for them over the last few months but a rare one to make it onto their website...and - not online, but entirely corporeal - on the underpasses of Warsaw in East Midlands arty types YH485's 'Inside' newspaper.

...and presenting, ladies and gentlemen, the Speculative Realist blog generator.

I like Razzmatazz; The Joy of Pulp not so much.

Maybe: What Men in Stained Raincoats Pay For... although that might give the wrong impression.

She is Somewhere in the City, maybe?

or

Nites of Suburbia.

or maybe:

where the sky is always grey, and the food exceptionally greasy.

I don't think these a very good, actually. I'd go for Razzmatazz.

I'd never recommend it but I'd be astonished if no one has used "Uncommon People" before...

'Sex City' - that should increase sales and google hits.

The new year's card from 1940 was made by the Isotype group directed by Otto Neurath. Five months later, Otto and his colleague Marie Reidemeister were on a boat out of Scheveningen, as the German forces invaded the city. You can see a very good show of their work at the V&A just now. It's on until March:

(For the record, I do believe that this copy of the Isotype new year's card belongs to me, and I was the was the one who scanned it! I gave it to the Stroom Gallery in The Hague, who ...)

It was sent to me by a friend for new year a couple of years ago - but full credit to you sir. Just been reading the reprint of The Transformer and all. Very good it is...

Thanks for that -- not complaining, I'm just curious about how these things get around (I've never seen it reproduced anywhere in print, nor on the www). Well, I'm just about to start reading A guide to the new ruins. I like the friendly format. RK
