BRING Instagram TO LIFE

01instagramAs someone who started life in magazine publishing, I have greeted the move to digital with some hesitation. Does anything really beat the smell of newsprint, the joy of flicking pages in a newly delivered magazine, relaxing by a campfire with a book in your hands, or going through old photo albums? I have loads of photos I barely look at because they’re all on my iPhone or my iPad or my iWhatever …. Anyway, a few weeks ago I posted about an Australian company who will print your Instagram images in gorgeous retro-style prints, Origrami. Well, I’ve just discovered an American company, Artifact Uprising who are doing the same. Inspired by the “disappearing beauty of the tangible”, the options they offer are just stunning. Hard and soft cover books, print sets and calendars. Sophisticated, elegant and beautiful, they’re a gorgeous way to keep your Instagram images out in the open. My favourites are the wooden boxes made with Colorado Beetle Kill wood. This means only wood from trees that have fallen due to nasty pine beetles is used. It’s a beautiful greyish-blue colour which serves as a soft backdrop for your images and keeps healthy trees safe. And the boxes hold all the books they make too. Prices start at just over a US tenner. Aren’t you tempted?
