Stuff that makes me do the Snoopy Dance

This makes me so excited. I can't wait to see it, I can't wait to use it on a client! No, it's not eyeliner...it's solar ink

via the LOVE BLOG:
Calvin Klein Collection have collaborated with Visionaire to create VISIONAIRE 56: SOLAR. They have used brand new printing technology to create limited edition books full of images that actually change from black and white to full colour when they are exposed to direct sunlight. According to Visionaire founder Cecilia Dean the inks were originally used in threads and fabrics- so this is a kind picture book answer to Global Hypercolor!

Contributors include Mario Sorrenti, Alex Katz, M/M Paris, Yoko Ono, Roe Ethridge, Peter Lindbergh, John Baldessari, Ugo Rondinone, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Ryan McGinley, Olaf Breuning, Richard Phillips, Glen Luchford and David Sims. Books will be available in Calvin Klein stores from today 5/1.

Visionaire is a multi-format fashion and art, limited edition magazine/book that publishes 3 times a year.

working with both established and emerging artists, Visionaire's issues feature a different theme and format each issue. Collaborators are asked to work in that theme and are given carte-blanche freedom to explore and push the format.

starts at $250 for a single issue [$675 for a subscription of 4], but they also have the SUPER exclusive formats that have special bindings and or boxes/kits and creations to make them even more prized.

Essentially this would be my dream job in case any one is reading:
Create art, every three months, make it crazy cool, exclusive, use never been seen techniques and oh by the way call up your favorite artists and your favorite speciality bindery why don't you. DREAM JOB
