The Boekhandel Selexyz Dominicanen in Maastricht is a bookstore built in a one-time Dominican church, celebrating a time when most of the knowledge preserved in books was not of a secular nature.

The New York Times' T Magazine often comissions artists to create their own version of the iconic T that is the magazine’s logo. There’s a great collection of the work over at the T Magazine blog featuring some of the standouts.
Iain Crawford's resulting images are brilliant, beautiful and bold, its likely the models may not enjoy these shoots. Crawford paints and peppers the models during the shoot, capturing perfect moments of chaotic color. His work has to be seen to be believed– and you can start in the gallery below. crawford via designyoutrust.
