Magazine Library, Print Culture, and Manizales' Poster Promotions

We're experimenting with this new post format again, trying to give you more bang for your buck in terms of offering a daily snapshot of what's happening in the world of PechaKucha, and trying to save you from the endless streams of feed notifications that seem to clutter our lives. Presentations As we recently covered on the blog, we had a special PechaKucha event this past Friday here in Tokyo, as part of the 10th edition of the Magazine Library exhibition. We invited 5 presenters to cover topics that touch on magazines and print culture, and we'll be sharing all of them online today and tomorrow. Today, you get to hear Audrey Fondecave talk about the upcoming issue of TOO MUCH ("the magazine of romantic geography"), Mike Abelson talk about his stationery brand Postalco, and a recent printing project he embarked on, and Luis Mendo tells us how Tokyo turned this editorial designer into an artist. Posters We've got another new batch of PKN posters and flyers up on our Tumblr blog, including a few examples of what was produced for PKN Manizales Vol. 1 (above, a flyer), as well as from PKN Muscat Vol. 1, PKN Beirut Vol. 13, PKN Buffalo Vol. 12, PKN Cagliari Vol. 2, and PKN Moscow Vol. 12. Event Photos We know you love seeing event photos -- to get a feel for how PKNs are being done around the world -- and we're going to be sharing even more, by posting links to even more galleries than in the past.

Fun by Design

Design can be beautiful, simple, and stark -- so why not add fun to that list? In today's Presentation of the Day, "Fun by Design" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 77, Koichi Suzuno (of Torafu Architects) shows off three design projects he has worked on in his spare time. From kitchen tools in the shape of children's building blocks to a small wooden table that can be hung over the railing of your balcony, his small projects all incorporate -- to a certain degree -- an element of fun.

The First Print Artist of Modern Japan

"The last important Ukio-e print master and the first print artist of modern Japan."In The First Print Artist of Modern Japan from Nishinomiya Vol. 24, John Szostak shares his admiration and insights into the work of Japanese artist Kobayashi Kiyochika. As Japan transitioned from its fuedal history and isolated past just over a centruy ago, opening its shores to the world, Kobayashi Kiyochika helped to usher Japan into a new age of art and print. He challenged the idea of the traditional Japanese print, updating it by integrating many of the artistic sensibilities found in western modern prints, painting, and photography.Be ready to be amazed.

A Short History of Print Media

“Before that in 1620 they started publishing newspapers. It didn't take long before it caught on in the provinces. The provinces loved newspapers because everyone likes to gossip and see what was going on.” In A short History of Print Media from PechaKucha Night Cambridge’s 3rd Volume, Presenter Paul Gibson takes us on a whistlestop tour of the world of print media. From the first newspapers, funny headlines, to some seriously provocative print ads, though a lot has changed, it's clear some things have remained consistent.
