If you take a moment to think back to May of this year, you may recall us telling you about Mike Perry’s typography compilation, Hand Job! A Catalogue of Type, which featured the work of Spear Collective Compatriot RoyalRemarkable and that of 54 other massively talented typographers.

Do you remember? Good. Now, snap out of flashback mode and start living in the present tense because thinking about the past is not going to get you to the Jen Bekman Gallery in New York City this Saturday, where Mike Perry will be signing copies of his book. Perry won’t be alone, though, he’ll be joined for a talk by Kate Bingaman-Burt, who while included in Perry’s book, also serves as the mastermind behind the exhibit currently on display, Obsessive Consumption, “a brand, company, website and art project developed as a means to explore and showcase her personal relationship with money, shopping, branding, credit cards, celebrity, advertising and marketing” through the employment of her versatile skills as a visual artist. Get thee to a gallery, more specifically the Jen Bekman gallery on Saturday from 3pm to 5pm.
