Please Do Not Touch the NY Times

kanyeJust in time for the book’s first day of sales, here’s a piece in the New York Times today. We ourself might have gone with a different headline, but I guess it gets attention. There’s nothing like plopping yourself down into the middle of pop culture. The book is nesting out the door. Get yours before it’s gone. You don’t want to be last on your block. Click on the pic for the full Times piece.

please do not touch, book signing

RIZZ INVITEPublication date is Tuesday April 10, which is when those of you wise enough and worried enough to plan ahead and pre-order your copy of our brilliant book about MOSS will be getting your books sent to you. Everyone here applauds your forethought and quick movements. Hear that? Okay, thanks guys. You can stop now. Anyway, this is a notice about the next step in the unleashing upon the world of our book.  A “conversation” between Murray and Franklin AND an opportunity to yes buy the book and then have it signed by us. Yes, both of us. I realize most of you do not have a clue what you’ll be doing on Monday April 23rd. So if you find yourself out and about, come on over to Rizzoli. Hilarity will reign. Click on the book to go to the book website for all kinds of things you’ll be happy to find.

 

Please Do Not Touch, the book

Our about to be immensely popular new book, with the same title as the t-shirt, will be released on April 10th by Rizzoli.  It will probably sell out in one day. Look at what happened to Fire and Fury. Of course, our book is not about Trump. Though it does have some pretty juicy revelations. It’s the story of MOSS, like you never heard it before. And speaking of Trump, did you know he NEVER shopped at MOSS? Unless it was him who broke in that night and stole the bicycle. I wouldn’t put it past him. Anyway, click on the shirt to go to the special Please Do Not Touch website where you can learn everything you need to know, including that you should pre-order from Amazon. It’s better to be safe than sorry, my grandmother always said. She always pre-ordered. And no, you cannot buy that t-shirt. It’s sold out. Let that be a lesson to you.

 

Advance copies out to reviewers

cover22It does finally seem to be happening, the release of our book. Scheduled for April 10, but last week the advance copies arrived. What this means is that a box of books arrived by FedEx ahead of all the others which are on a ship somewhere. Design-obsessed Somali pirates take note. We are wore out handling the thousands of pre-launch demands for interviews and photo sessions. Okay, maybe not thousands. Okay, two. But they were long, okay? It seemed like more. You can click on the book and be whisked over to Amazon where you can preorder and have it delivered to your door rather than have to go out in the fourth or fifth bombogalactic winter storm which are no doubt waiting around the corner.

Gives New Meaning to Sleeping With the Fishes

Miami’s AVANT gallery opened in New York last night, featuring ISOLAT E, the Skull Edition, a new aquarium concept by Moss Bureau clients Martin Schapira and Nathan Kamelhar.  Really, it’s hard to go wrong with a pink skull and some beautiful fish. Right, guys?

Design Miami: the last day, images and memories

The clear highpoint of Day Zero was a visit from everyone’s favorite North American, Kareem Rashid. Here Haresh explains the morphing fruit platters, to little effect.

And here a somewhat surreal woman with hideous red hair used her iPad like a Steadicam, floating silently around the booth.

People loved shooting the booth. Here are but two simultaneous imagesmiths in action.

And finally, a shot of our beloved Corrie, who stepped in at the last minute to work the booth with us and without whom we would have been up a tree without a paddle. Here she is, doing her dusting. Bless.

Design Miami Day 4: the handwriting’s on the wall

Turns out writing on the booth walls by hand is more radical a move than one might suspect. It’s been causing a small ruckus.

We just thought it might be a nice change from endless and tasteful vinyl. Besides we kept thinking up new things to write as we were installing.

Who is this man? And why is he in all my photos taken from inside the Moss booth?

Design Miami continues. Day 2. Tired.
