Gerald is not your ordinary dog. Gerald was born in 2008 as part of a rebrand for British design studio Lazerian and came as nine easy to assemble paper panels. Starting in 2011, hundreds of Geralds were shipped to artists’ studios all over the world with the only instruction for creatives being to put their own spin on it. Now all 100+ Geralds have been wrangled and can be seen together for the first time starting in May. B&A artists Jimi Crayon, Kai & Sunny, Simon Spilsbury, Stan Chow, and Tatiana Arocha will all have their very own Gerald on display at the exhibit. The exhibition will run from May 17-19th with a special preview on Thursday the 16th in New York City.

Todd Selby gave us a sneak peek at his new book, Edible Selby, over the weekend. We had a lovely selection of snacks and enjoyed a lively presentation by Todd himself at agency Mother‘s NY office. Mother is also the mastermind behind the book’s design, so it was appropriate that the Edible Selby launch kicked off at their offices. Todd also personally signed copies of the book, which was an extra special treat.
In the book, Todd focuses his lens on the kitchen, showcasing 40 international food figures and their gardens, homes, and restaurants. Each profile is accompanied by a watercolor illustration and handwritten questionnaire. Also included are some super cute magnets for your fridge.
You can see Todd and get your signed copy of Edible Selby while he’s on his west coast book tour. Dates and tickets are listed below.

We asked the team if Mr. Lagerfeld has told I Love Dust any good (or bad) jokes since they’ve been collaborating. We’re still waiting to hear back for the full story and can’t promise that we will… but are pretty sure it has something to do with a mouse.
