Very awesome vinyl for the Star Wars sound track with a hologram
“The Force Awakens goes 3D.
Following on from that die-cut picture disc of newbie droid BB-8, Disney is pressing John Williams’ magnificent soundtrack for Episode VII: The Force Awakens to vinyl. Not any old vinyl, mind; these are holographic records that offer a 3D experience of the Millennium Falcon on disc 1 and a TIE fighter on disc 2.
Hand-etched by Infinity Light Science’s Tristan Duke, the artists behind the tricks in Jack White’s ‘ultra-LP’ Lazaretto, the holograms can be seen under a direct light source or flashlight.”

3. illustration: Strangest things ever spotted through a window
We’re loving these illustrations by Paul Blow
“When we walk down a residential street, we can’t help but peek inside the windows of people’s homes. We know it’s rude, but the cosy glow of a lamp will always spark our curiosity to sneak a cheeky look.
Now Dorset-based illustrator Paul Blow has illustrated six of the strangest things ever spotted through a window, including a woman who was “weighing her boob” and a woman walking “a guy on a leash wearing black leather!”
