Local Clothing Company Marine Layer Turns Five, Prints Vintage SF Tees

The traditional gift for a fifth anniversary is something made of wood. To celebrate its own fifth anniversary, San Francisco-based design shop Marine Layer, home of super soft cotton and beechwood fiber clothing decorated with 1970s-esque graphics, is gifting you with designs of t-shirts past.

The Exquisite Book Launch

Last Thursday, local artists and art lovers gathered at Rare Device in Duboce Triangle to celebrate the publication of The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game (Chronicle Books). In it—as its name implies—a hundred artists play the legendary Exquisite Corpse game, in which they each make a picture in sequence, based only on the prior artist's rendering. Kind of like a cross between Telephone and Pictionary for pros, though the game was actually invented by the Surrealists, that cheerful French lot who valued pure expression above reason, morals and even aesthetics. The resulting book shows—in satisfyingly thick, fold-out pages—the results of this collective stream of consciousness.
