‘Nothing Like Something’ is a first edition solo publication by Street Photographer Nils Jorgensen, a carefully crafted art book designed by Studio Sutherl&.
The book design is a beautifully simple embodiment of Nils' playful process in curating the book. In Nils' own words,“I liked the idea of a random photo sequence. It is all akin to street photography itself, the beauty of chance visual happenings. The 100 featured photographs in the book are not in a particular order. The final sequence came about by shuffling the photos like a pack of cards”.
By leaving the cover blank albeit for two debossed panels (NOTHING) Studio Sutherl& invite the viewer to experience the joyous nature of juxtaposing different images with an accompanying box of adhesive photographs (SOMETHING), allowing them to customise their own book with a unique combination, lovely stuff.
To Have & To Hold is an edition documenting paper bag ephemera from a bygone era. Collected and designed by Tim Sumner of Sumner-Works, issue one takes a deep dive into bookshops with promise of many more subjects to come.
The publication itself comes wrapped in paper bag, with classic price labels used to hand number each copy. For more information see here.

A super elegant and well crafted campaign by Paprika in Montreal, combines musical instruments and the number 10. Black and white photography along with a muted color palette and strong typography has resulted in a very striking and probably very cost effective solution.
A beautifully simple, charming identity to meet one of those briefs that might easily feel overwhelming. Balancing respect for the heritage with a playful lightness of touch is an incredibly delicate business. Manual have pulled it off magnificently. That curious e is a masterstroke.
