Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is a collage of images of dozens of people — mostly famous, mostly men — arranged as though they’re standing in a group behind the band.

New York's New Digital Subway Map

An anonymous reader shares a report: The date was April 20, 1978; the scene, the Great Hall of the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art on Astor Place. On the stage where Abraham Lincoln once spoke sat two men, the Italian modernist Massimo Vignelli and the cartographer John Tauranac, constituting two sides of the Great Subway Map Debate. Six years earlier, Vignelli's firm had reimagined the New York subway map into a groovy rainbowlike diagram, one that graphic designers loved an...

‘We were let loose’: my art school days, by Peter Blake, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Steve McQueen and more

Eight great British artists on graduating, and their advice for the Class of 2020 I joined in 1953, after my national service. I’d applied to study graphic design, but was accepted as a painter – I had sent them a portrait I did of my sister. So I studied painting but knew about graphic design, which accounts for a lot. I was so grateful to be there, and used it well. Continue reading...

"People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another ... hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors."

Said Councilman Peter Blake, quoted in "Putting American flags on police cars sparks backlash in Laguna Beach" (LA Times).“We have such an amazing community of artists here, and I thought the aesthetic didn’t really represent our community,” [artist Carrie] Woodburn said. “It feels very aggressive.”Attorney Jennifer Welsh Zeiter said at the last council meeting that she found the police cars “exceptional” and questioned the loyalty of anyone who objected to the American flag display. “They are s...

LONDON — Uber's arch-rival Lyft has quietly met with London's transport regulators five times over the past 12 months.

50 years ago today...

I never forget the first album I owned. I was a schoolboy at the time and living in The Netherlands. One evening my father brought home a cassette tape (anyone remember those?) and on it was the most bizarrely colourful photographs of people I had ever seen. I didn't know it at the time but what I held in my hand would completely change my view on music. It was tranformational. I played the tape expecting to hear some sort of brass band music, or other seemingly boring stuff, as represented b...

8 groovy facts about Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

The summer of 1967 was a turbulent time. In the middle of the hippie-filled “Summer of Love,” war broke out in the Middle East and the US escalated its bombing of Vietnam. That June also saw the most famous rock band in the world release their magnum opus and change music history and American pop culture forever. The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was unlike anything that had come before it, and its experimentalism, psychedelic nature, and sheer bravado epitomized the transformat...

How The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Changed Album Cover Design Forever

I am older than Evan Puschak, The Nerdwriter, one of a handful who have mastered the online video essay. But I still find myself agreeing with his take on the music video as mostly unnecessary and distracting. At least at first. Then I get nostalgic and remember some of the videos of my youth, like, say The Cure’s “Pictures of You” or Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”—both bittersweet tracks about nostalgia—and I feel differently. The video can have a powerful emot...

Golf At Rio '16: What A Shame

My imagination, dancing from those memories, conjured up a special meeting in New York City with a few cases of cold suds and a few industry friends. We'd take over a conference room at Sports Illustrated and SI-writer extraordinaire Jack McCallum would be holding f...
