New in the VNA shop. "VNA logo" t-shirt in Heather grey…

After the hugely popular black “VNA logo” t-shirt, we decided to do another short run of t-shirts this time in classic heather grey…

These are limited to only 50 in this colourway, so once they are gone they are gone.

Free shipping worldwide on these t-shirts.

Turbokolor Press Tribute Series x VNA

Born out of an appreciation for the art of printed magazines, our good friends at Turbokolor set about to create a series of T-shirts featuring designs made by Swanski, their Art Director, in collaboration with individuals from selected publications.

The guys at Turbokolor hold the strong belief that tangible magazines should not be left in the darkened corners of the past but instead celebrated and acknowledged as the foundation of our modern blog and online culture. VNA welcomed the opportunity to take a stand for the importance of printed text and imagery and so jumped on board at the offer of a collaborative Tee.

Other magazines involved in the project were Amateur (Switzerland), Modart, Lodown & Streetwear Today (Germany). The series premieres in the 1st week of June at the Turbokolor flagship store in Warsaw and online at store.turbokolor.com.

Josh Keyes "Evacuation"

EvacuationI know it’s easy to get cynical with all these fund raising events and prints happening left, right and centre. But this one caught my eye for a few reasons – firstly Josh Keyes is a sublime artist and second $10 (or a third if you prefer) of the $30 for this 8×10 print goes direct to Doctors Without Borders (that’s MSF for those outside the US).

This unsigned edition will be available March 22nd through March 29th, 2011.  Although it’s unsigned, like all Tiny Showcase editions the  reverse side of each archival print has been hand-stamped with their authentication insignia and hand-numbered. Prints ship with a corresponding numbered certificate of authenticity that has been hand-stamped with the edition’s date and intitialed by the head of Tiny Showcase’s in-house print studio. The archival artwork has been printed on a 290gsm natural white printmaking paper.

And really for $30 it’s hard to quibble. Grab yours here to gain a lovely little print and help out a worthy organisation who do work in conditions you or I would run a mile from: http://www.tinyshowcase.com/artwork.php?id=1831
