New and Freshly Printed Publications by POOL Publishing
Lost Spring, Italo Summer Dreams Postcard Box, Pin Up Guinea Pigs, and B-Sides
While switching through the news, we have some good ones for you today. Slanted Shop has refilled its shelves with some brand-new freshly printed POOL Publishing’s publications. We present you two books, a calendar, and one post card set, which put a smile on one’s face in those times.
2020 was—and still is—a strange year. Starting off as self-therapy to cope with nameless solitude this body of work evolved into a documentation of 10 odd weeks. 10 weeks that didn’t line up with any other weeks before. With Alexander Kilian playful Photographs, composed and arranged but still containing the feeling of a snapshot, the world seems to make sense again. His photographic work is characterized by the precise combination between structures and colors captured together with the playful use of light and shadows. Brilliant!
