Church of London | Huck Magazine, Little White Lies, Geoff McFectridge & Where The Wild Things Are

 

The next issues of Little White Lies and Huck will look remarkably good on your newsagent's shelves: the magazines' covers are two parts of a single illustration by Geoff McFetridge...

The Church Of London, the creative agency founded by Rob Longworth, Danny Miller and Paul Willoughby, publishes, art directs and designs both film magazine Little White Lies and surf, skate and snowboarding style title, Huck.

The forthcoming issues feature Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are in some way: the director is interviewed in Huck (hence he appears on the cover alonside some rather intrusive "wild things"), while Little White Lies is wholly dedicated to the new film, based on Maurice Sendak's children's book (main character, Max, features on their cover).

Wet Magazine Covers

  

  

  

 

Wet was an avant-garde Los Angeles-based magazine that revolved around the idea of "gourmet bathing" and later evolved to "gourmet bathing and beyond." Its publisher and creator was Leonard Koren, an architecture school graduate. The magazine covered cultural issues and was known for its innovative use of graphic art.

Over the years, Wet began to reflect a broader expanse of stories, capturing a kind of smart, artsy Los Angeles attitude that was emerging at the same time as punk, but had its own distinct aesthetic. Wet lasted 34 issues, spanning the years 1976 to 1981.

 

  

  

  

  

You can read the entire July / August 1981 Issue here and the entire December 81 Issue here. Covers were sourced here.

Style Out da' Ass | Lincoln's Designer Car Series

In the late 70s Lincoln created one of the most collectible American cars of the decade: The designer series of the big Mark V Coupés. Each year Lincoln presented four masterpieces with interiors styled by Cartier, Givenchy, Emilio Pucci and Bill Blass, flamboyant in every detail. It was the last full-size model of the range with staggering 5,85 m in length and a 7536 cm³-V8 engine with 210 HP.

What the brochure said about the Pucci Edition Mark V shown above: "A dramatic combination of black and white emphasizes the overall sleekness of the new Mark V. Emilio Pucci specified Cayman grain patent leather appearance for the white roof and a formal interior of white leather and vinyl with black trim. His signature is embedded in the opera windows..."

Tomi Ungerer | Artist & Illustrator

  

  

  

  

  

 

"If people were brave enough to live out their erotic fantasies, pornography would disappear altogether. I've always believed that eroticism, even more than sensuality, is a form of liberation."

Tomi Ungerer is a French illustrator best known for his erotic and political illustrations as well as children's books.

Ungerer moved to the United States in 1956. The following year, Ungerer published his first children's book for Harper & Row, The Mellops Go Flying. He also did illustration work for The New York Times and for television during this time, and began to create posters denouncing the Vietnam War.

After Allumette; A Fable, with Due Respect to Hans Christian Andersen, the Grimm Brothers, and the Honorable Ambrose Bierce in 1974, Ungerer ceased writing children's books, focusing instead on adult-level books, many of which focused on sexuality. He eventually returned to children's literature with Flix, 1998.

He currently lives on the Mizen Peninsula in Ireland, where he and his wife moved in 1976.
