    Today is a 24-hour clock that simplifies the day into a perfect balance of dawn, noon, dusk, and midnight, designed to capture that feeling of wonder you get when you look out at the clouds passing by from 30,000 ft.

    Check it out on Kickstarter

    What is Literalogue? 

     
    “Literalogue is a visual encyclopaedia of literature, literary movements, and the greatest literary figures; compiling all the prominent literary movements, authors and poets of the past five centuries, such as the Metaphysical Poets, the Augustans, Realism, Romanticism, Modernism and the less known Oulipo and Imagism. All authors are categorised by literary movement using colour coded noses to help you explore and discover new reads based on what you enjoy reading most. Find authors you know and love, and discover ones you’ve never heard of till now.”

    Back this kickstarter project.

    Kickstarting Last Gasp 

    Since 1970, Last Gasp has been an axis of the art and counterculture communities in San Francisco and beyond, publishing both emerging and established artists.

    From our early years publishing underground comix to more recent art books, we’ve tried to publish unusual artists whose artwork moves us on a visceral level. In more than four decades we have published books with artists such as Robert Crumb, Mark Ryden,Camille Rose Garcia,Gary Baseman, Robert Williams, Junko Mizuno,Trina Robbins, S. Clay Wilson, Justin Green, Spain Rodriguez, Keiji Nakazawa, Suehiro Maruo, Elizabeth McGrath, Timothy Leary, Todd Schorr, Ron English, Laurie Lipton, Diane DiPrima, and countless others.

    In addition to publishing, Last Gasp is a distributor, selling books from small and independent publishers to a network of booksellers worldwide.

    The book business is changing. In the past, it was “difficult” to publish unusual books. Now it is nearly impossible. To cover the costs of printing Last Gasp needs up-front support from people who love books.

    The money you contribute will go directly into the printing and production costs of forthcoming publications.

    Let’s help the good guys kickstart the project, here.
