By chance, looking for some illustration work, I found this... and it made me smile. According to their website 2,430 pieces of toast were laser burnt to make this video... that's a lot of toast! Beautiful.

Wallpaper magazine has employed the services of various designers and illustrators to create a series of handmade covers for their August issue. With the involvement of artists and designers such as Alan Kitching, Anthony Burrill, Rob Ryan and APFEL the result is obviously quite impressive to say the least.
The 30 covers will be displayed at London's KK Outlet from 5 to 25 July.
Personally, I felt I had to include this short but very moving film of Alan Kitching making his cover, but you can also check other artists at work here.
*all images from wallpaper.com, artists featured in order are Anthony Burril, Tom Hingston, Alan Kitching, APFEL, Supermundane. Film by Jake & Josh featuring Alan Kitching.
