Fab.com Flash Sale. NYC Collection Metal Gray, 24% off
An homage to the simple beauty of the subway and bus rolls of the early 1900s, this three-piece NYC Collection features notable neighborhoods and destinations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Carefully crafted at Going Underground’s Manhattan studio as a tribute to the city that never sleeps, these prints show off the razor-sharp beauty of early 20th-century design.
$68 for all three 14”x22” prints makes me really want them … they also have LA, Chicago, Berlin, South America, and a bunch more.

Letterboxd, the social film diary and review site I’ve been working on with a few colleagues over the past year, is nearing its public beta launch. We’ve continued to add to and improve the site since launching at Brooklyn Beta last October — film pages have had an overhaul as you can see above, among many other improvements.
If you’d like to be part of the private beta, drop your email address at letterboxd.com over the weekend, and we’ll get an invitation out to you early next week.
Much like the United States, Holland has strict rules regulating child labor and the legal working age, which is usually set at 14. Children younger than that can work for three hours a week or less, a stipulation that hasn’t stopped Dutch designer Lucas Maassen from opening Lucas Maassen & Sons, a furniture “factory” run primarily by his three young sons, who design, build and paint the pieces for a fee of one euro per piece (as stipulated by a contract the trio entered into with their father).
