Eye-Contact tumblr.

When a character in a movie looks straight into the camera, you somehow feel them looking at you, as if they are no longer part of the movie. On the tumblr-blog eye contact someone is collecting these screens of famous movies.(warning: It's kind of creepy)

The book series by Lena Corwin and Maria Alexandra Vettese

Journal of Plants - the idea started from the two of us being new gardeners and being fascinated by what was sprouting up from the dirt this past spring. i felt the need to catalog what was growing and we started taking snapshots of clippings from our little gardens… that grew into a bigger idea of cataloging the plants we see while traveling (my trip to paris and maria’s to san francisco), and how we keep plants in our homes.

Jane & Jeremy - This lovely young couple from Liverpool hand-sew utterly sweet books in small editions, which consist mainly of their own whimsical snapshots. They are a perfect example of packaging making all the difference between wanting to pick up a book, or not. Their most recent book, Having a Wonderful Time in Europa (pictured), is an edition of 60 that slips into a map of Europe that they‘ve stitched into an envelope. Another small book, XXX, features a soft pink cover, the contents consisting of Polaroids snapped at the moment that the two leads in Hollywood films kiss. This year’s fair was also their first time visiting New York, and their enthusiasm for being there was totally infectious.

Described as “PostSecret for the ears” by Paste Magazine, One Hello World is a collection of voicemails set to their own soundtrack created by an anonymous composer. Callers from across the world participate by dialing One Hello World’s voicemail and sharing their story. The result is a musical compilation giving listeners a cross-section of the human experience. With the help of a successful Kickstarter project, a 30-track debut album, The Listener is set to be released in late March.
