One of my daily must-read blogs throughout 2010 was Lisa Congdon’s A Collection a Day. On January 1, 2010, the San Francisco-based designer/artist/illustrator kicked off a year-long project, posting a new photo, painting or illustration of her collections (both real and imagined) every day.
Now Lisa’s project has been, well, collected in a soon-to-be-released book published by UPPERCASE.
Colourful, curious and neatly organized, Lisa’s collections highlight the design similarities and differences of the objects in each grouping. Many are also available as prints – this series of red enamel kitchen utensils would be a striking piece of kitchen art.
This illustration of Jonathan Adler pottery is slightly more affordable than the real thing.
Check out UPPERCASE to preview more of Lisa’s collection and pre-order your copy in a “collectible” tin.
