Say hello to the Polaroid PIC 1000. Thanks to the endeavours of 'The Impossible Project', Polaroid is crawling back from the dead as news has hit that our favourite camera film will be back on shelves this year. The new Polaroid camera is a refabbed version of the old Polaroid OneStep camera. Available in a slick wood grain pattern or silver and black and will take 600 film.
Polaroid has also announced that they have taken Lady GaGa onboard to work with them as a spokesperson. So we may also be seeing a Lady GaGa designed polaroid camera soon too. All exciting stuff. Lets just hope I can start to afford the film!

The Wildlife Analysis is an psychedelic-ethnographic journey to an indefinite country. Usings ballpoint pen mixed with fluorescent and coloured pencil, Dimitri Broquard creates drawings that translate as a lost world, a place between the romantic and the baroque. Broquard seeks inspiration from the Age of Enlightenment, the time of discovering and explaining the world, the myth of "The Savage", the confrontation of rationality and mysticism.
Dimitri Broquard is part, with Bastien Aubry, of the two-man design studio FLAG. Since 2002 FLAG has worked for art and cultural institutions, producing catalogues, artists books, magazines and posters. FLAG also creates drawings, illustrations for editorials and private projects. Both Broquard and Aubry respectively teach at art schools in Switzerland.
I bought this beautiful little zine from Analogue Books in Edinburgh's Grassmarket. Published last year by Nieves.
While in Edinburgh last week me and Aimee came across a great little shop/gallery on Victoria Street by the grassmarket, called The Red Door Gallery. They sell all sorts of great books,bags, jewellery, ceramics and work by new and already established artists.
I bought one of these great little D.I.Y. collage kits put together by artist Anthony Zinonos. Check out his work on his website and definately check out the shop when you're ever in Edinburgh.
