Polaroid For Charity

from Look To The Stars

Viggo Mortensen Takes Part In Charity Polaroid Auction

Polaroid is honoring its founder Dr. Edwin Land’s passion for the arts with the launch of the Made in Polaroid exhibit.

An art show featuring more than 60 pieces created by a mix of artists, designers, photographers, actors and musicians who are united in their passion for creativity, all pieces will be auctioned with proceeds benefiting Free Arts NYC, a non-profit that provides arts and mentoring programs to under-served children. Participating artists include fashion photographers Patrick Demarchelier and Steven Klein, designers Cynthia Rowley and Phillip Lim and actors James Franco and Viggo Mortensen, among many others.

“It’s very interesting to me that at this moment in time the new Polaroid G10 printer arrives and re-objectifies the photograph, literally making an object, a paper photograph,” said participating photographer Matthew Rolston. “We seem to be headed toward a paperless world of visual communication and yet here we have an exciting new product that re-invigorates the thought of trading imagery – actual photographs that we hold in our hands – with each other.”

Also taking part are Brett Ratner, James Frey, Tyra Banks and many more.

The exhibit explores the infinite number of ways technology can enable creative expression. Featuring pieces that range from single mounted images to multi-print mosaics, each artist taps a different approach to tell a story with photos. All works were created exclusively using the Polaroid GL10 Instant Mobile Printer, the first product from Lady Gaga’s Grey Label line.

A Million Little Flipbacks

from PaperSpecs

Going Forward with the Flipbacks

August 30, 2011

Hodder & Stoughton, a UK publisher, recently introduced a paperback book format that’s the size of an iPhone. Called Flipbacks, the books are one-third the size of traditional books.

They’re lightweight, feel nice in the palm of your hand and fit conveniently in a back pocket or purse. Some booksellers are already thinking of them as a great alternative to the e-reader … Flipbacks are always fully charged.

Only a few titles have been published in the format so far: The Other Hand by Chris Cleave; The Adventures of English by Melvyn Bragg; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carré; Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde; A Million Little Pieces by James Frey; Misery by Stephen King; Liar’s Poker by Michael Lewis; Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell; One Day by David Nicholls; My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult; Piece of My Heart by Peter Robinson and Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier.

Flipbacks have been launched in Spain, France and Australia to date with deals pending in Germany and Scandinavia.

And even though it was released nearly 19 years ago (and coincided with Madge’s aptly-titled 1992 albumErotica), it turns out the Material Girl’s naughty coffee table offering has toppedBookfinder.com’s annual fall list of the 100 most sought-after out-of-print titles in the United States.

“The list differs from year to year as trends change and books get republished,” Bookfinder.com notes in the ninth annual installment of its Fall Report. The site also refers toSex as “Madonna’s nearly perennial number one” on the list.
