The Paris 2024 Olympics logo combines the Olympic flame, Marianne – the French national symbol, and a gold medal, all in one. The new design created by creative agencyRoyalties Ecobranding, brings together three iconic symbols connected to sport, the Games and France. The Paris2024 font is a variable bespoke typeface which takes its inspiration from Art Deco.
Having previously hosted the games in 1900 and 1924, Paris will become the second city to host the Olympics three times and 2024 will mark the 100 years anniversary of the Paris Games of 1924.
The Birds of America is a book by naturalist and painter John James Audubon, containing illustrations of a wide variety of birds of the United States. It was first published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838, in Edinburgh and London. The work consists of 435 beautiful, hand-coloured, life-size prints, made from engraved plates, measuring around 99 by 66 cm.
All these 435 illustrations from J. J. Audubon’s ‘Birds of America’ are available now for free download. My favorite is the one with the huge pink flamingo.
One Breath Around the World is the latest ethereal underwater film from the freediving champion Guillaume Néry, and his partner, also free diver and underwater filmmaker Julie Gautier.

This beautiful retro mosaic was recently installed in the entryway of a Brooklyn home. The Brownstone Project is committed to reviving the art of mosaics and offers custom entryway mosaic design and installation services, working with newly emerging craftsmen. I am imagining a beautiful “Athens” mosaic in the entryway of our home!
