A new book, published by Stickit, celebrates the work of street artist Eltono, who has painted his unusual, geometric art on the walls of cities all over the world…
Eltono was born in Paris, but lived in Madrid throughout the 2000s, before moving to Beijing in 2010. The book, titled Line and Surface, gives an overview of his work from the last 12 years. As well as his public art, Elonto’s work has featured in exhibitions at galleries including Tate Modern in London and Fundacion Miró in Barcelona.
Featuring design by Jeroen van Mourik and texts by Javier Abarca and Rafael Schacter, Line and Surface is published in a limited edition of 1,000.

Volume One, The Mystery of the Prime Numbers takes its readers on a journey into the inner workings of the number system. It makes use of an innovative visual approach to communicate some surprisingly advanced mathematical ideas without any need for formulas, equations, x's or y's. Brought to life by the gently psychedelic cartoon imagery of illustrator Matt Tweed, we can confidently say that nothing like this book has been created before. It’s not just another “popular science” book about prime numbers (neither is it a book of woolly New Age number mysticism!) – rather, the issue of prime numbers acts as a gateway into some truly strange philosophical territory whose relevance extends well beyond abstract mathematics and which is genuinely worthy of the word “mystery”. By the end of this volume, readers will have been shown conclusively that whatever it is, the seemingly familiar system of counting numbers isnot what you thought it was! This book can be read by anyone who understands the basic ideas of counting, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing, who has a general curiosity about the nature of things and who is able to concentrate hard enough to, say, work on a simple Sudoku puzzle. Wanna have a look inside?
“The Warming Papers” is a hefty new volume published by Wiley-Blackwell and edited by the climate scientists David Archer and Raymond Pierrehumbert at the University of Chicago. It’s a rich feast for anyone who wants to trace the history of climate science from its earliest origins to the present. Read more over at New York Times.
