Vending Machines: Coined Consumerism, is a new book by Christopher D Salyers, documenting some of the craziest, dirtiest, wierdest. . . (add superlative of your choice here) vending machines imaginable, from the boardwalks of LA to the dark alleys of Japan. Salyers uses the book to take you on a journey of the vending machine, siting it’s initial filling of a market void through to it may modern day enhancements. with the fly-on-the-wall photography this book is definitely one for the Zoo coffee table. get it from here.

All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2009′
LaMJC have done it again with, All Gone – The Finest of Street Culture 2009 annual – i first got this back in 2007, & my 2009 edition got here this weekend! the annual book looks back at all thing “streetwear” from the previous, i’ve always liked the play on the title, ALL GONE because as we all know in this culture, when something’s hot it usually is ALL GONE before us over here in the UK get to buy it.
lurking the web i saw you can now view the book online, i’m not sure whether to feel shafted or so-so but i thought i might aswell share the wealth so click here for a look or do as i did &pick a copy up from from SNS.
