Summertime Dispatch

Written by dusttodigital on . Posted in Blog

We are excited to announce a new partnership with the Lionel Ziprin Archives to reproduce a series of greeting cards originally designed at Inkweed Studios in New York in the 1950s. Available for the first time since 1957, the iconic card by Bruce Conner “I’m Always Thinking of You” (pictured right) inaugurates the series. This item is currently on sale at MoMA Books to coincide with the Bruce Conner: It’s All True exhibition at MoMA. It is also available online via the Dust-to-Digital website, with more cards by Conner and other Inkweed artists coming soon.

The recently-opened exhibit, The Beat Generation, at the Centre Pompidou in Paris is a retrospective dedicated to the literary and artistic Beat movement born in the late 1940s. Through an agreement with the museum, our Music of Morocco box set will be playing throughout the exhibit to enrich the museum experience for patrons while viewing the works of William Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac and other artists.

Music of Morocco has been named to NPR’s list of Top 30 Releases of the Year So Far:
“…an absolutely gorgeous four-album set, elaborately outfitted with Paul Bowles’ field notes and extensive liner notes. This set is a portrait of Bowles’ tastes as much as it is a collection of sonic snapshots in newly independent Morocco; either way, it’s a treasure.” —Anastasia Tsioulcas
