    In light of alnoves post which did not go in the right direction. I stand here pointing down the right route:

    WHAT IS THE MOST RECENT
    DESIGNED/
    DESIGN ORIENATED/
    DESIGN INSPIRED OBJECT
    YOU HAVE BOUGHT.

    Me, I gave in and bought my GF a si Scott poster for her B'day:

    http://www.siscottstudio.com/work/resonate/resonate_03.jpg

    And myself a supermundane poster:

      no British person would buy a design print of their recently voted in PM. Its just wrong.mase3/7
      although, respect like, I suppose. We all followed it like mad over here, I would have voted for Bama. ROW should really get a vote too considering.

      but what are you gonna do with it when it turns out he doesn't do anything he sold you on?liveslow6/7
      haha, odd timing. buy the poster after all the hype has diminished and he's failing.mnmlst7/7

  • ian

    They're great dancer, the si scott one is gorgeous. Where did you buy them from?

    Last design thingy I bought, my wireless router? Does that count?
    Or an issue of 'Wire' cos I liked the cover design. Sad, but I can't think of anything else.

    • £145 on the first site £40 on the second? Is that second one legit? Seems to be a much nicer site too.ian3/8
      why is it so much cheaper? weird.Jaline4/8
      Cosh is an official reseller listed at Si's site. Anyway, I'm buying the cheaper one. Must be legit.Jaline5/8
      Maybe it's smaller or doesn't come with the certificate of authenticity. But that's still a huge price difference.Jaline6/8
      Maybe, but I don't need a cert for £105. seems like a steal to me.ian7/8
      they are a2, they do come with certificate also they are edition of 100alnove8/8

    A copy of Massimo Vignelli's redesign of the New York City Subway Diagram. I can't wait until it arrives!

    http://www.condenaststore.com/ProdImages/CN002_EXTR.JPG

    • Ahhh that is beautiful!OSFA1/10
      I always ponder whether or not I should buy this stuff. But I decide against it since I don't know much about NY.Jaline2/10
      well..I know some stuff but I don't care to have a subway system map. I feel like it has to have some use to me.Jaline3/10
      Were these not going for about $200 a go? I remember QBN linking to it, via a men's magazine or something? Expensive!scribbler4/10
      I don´t like itmoamoa5/10
      It was $299 at CondeNast. Not bad considering the original 1972 map sells for $200+ on ebay.Duane6/10
      And although it's not totally useful, it is a piece of design history that will gain value.Duane7/10
      amazing...organic_grid8/10
      I've always loved subway maps :PLillebo9/10

    I got a subscription to McSweeney's for my birthday. I've been admiring those books for some time now.

    Also picked up back issue 22, which is pretty sweet...3 volumes held in place by magnets.

    I just bought the IDEA magazine Archive 01 on Saul Bass. Magma have it back in stock after being out of stock forever. Lush. I have the Wim Crowel one too, well worth getting hold of a copy.

      £29.99. they are beautiful magazines. more like books really, and typeset in japanese. beautiful. I bought my bf a Jan Tschiold one for crimbo which is beautiful too.scribbler3/10
      I bought this in hardback, think i paid about £80 for it. Gorgeous. Was just looking at it last week, nearly forgot I had it.ian4/10
      have you got the original? Apparently they scanned in a copy of the original (no plates or artwork available) and re-issued it.scribbler5/10
      re-issued it.scribbler6/10
      I have the re-scanned hardback. Think I might have gotten it from you work for them, a few years ago.ian7/10
