The ever talented Matthew Dent got in touch with us towards the end of last week with some nice updates to his growing pool of great illustrative work. Interestingly, it would appear that he was also involved in the latest Glug event.

Matt was last featured on Human Resources after he created this super illustration for us.

Synesthesia

The latest short film by Terri Timely explores Synesthesia; a neurologically based phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. A very visually interesting and surreal work.

Robert Longo

Since then he has gone on to create an incredible volume of consistently brilliant illustrative work.

Rare Book Room

Rare Book Room has an impressive collection of hi-res images of full ancient books, including Albrecht Dürer’s De Symmetria… and Underweysung der Messung, a classic on proportion and geometry with a chapter on, type design. Another book that interested me was, The First Six Books of the Elements of EuclidIt’s by Oliver Byrne, which is a mathematics book from 1849, however some of the diagrams it features are reminiscent of early modernist work, very interesting stuff.
A must for any fans of print.
