Heart, be still! Legendary graphic designer Louise Fili (yes, her) partnered with Princeton Architectural Press on this gorgeous new set of Perfetto Pencils inspired by 1930s Italian pencil boxes… A design dream come true.
We agree. Very proud of our new collaboration with Ms. Fili.

How a Brooklyn brownstone became a low-energy passive house
"It’s a ‘machine for living’. The air within the house changes once every three hours with the ventilation system".
Nice article in The Financial Times where Julie Torres Moskovitz, designer of the passive house in Park Slope, Brooklyn, discusses her energy-efficient home. Torres Moskovitz is also the author of The Greenest Home: Superinsulated and Passive House Design, available now.
This set of writing sheets (pattern one side, blank on verso), envelopes, and stickers features designs by Shanan Campanaro (Eskayel), Brittany Keats Cerullo, and Kindah Khalidy. Selected to mix, match, complement, and clash, these patterned papers are enclosed in a portfolio envelope. Curated by the Textile Arts Center.
In late 2008, after the real estate crash, architect Dennis Wedlick decided to design, with his staff and collaborators, an economically feasible and sustainable home that could serve as a prototype for home buyers. Thus the Hudson Passive Project was born, a 1,650-sq-ft model residence in Claverack, New York.
From The Greenest Home: Superinsulated and Passive House Design, available from PAPress here.
Nice little Riso-printed pamphlet by PAPress designer Benjamin English. Text originally from The Encyclopedia of Jazz, by Leonard Feather. This self-published booklet is for “educational purposes only”.

40 Years Later:
The Sydney Opera House
In 1957, Danish architect Jørn Utzon was the unlikely winner of an international competition to design the Sydney Opera House in Australia, which finally opened in 1973. Forty years later, the bold design is still considered an architectural masterpiece. October marks the 40th anniversary of the Opera House with festivities being held all over Australia to embrace the milestone.
At PAPress, we’re celebrating with the release of a new book on the architect. Jorn Utzon: Drawings and Buildings, by Michael Asgaard Andersen, will be released in December and dives deep into the highly diverse projects that the visionary architect took on, including the revered Opera House but also his lesser-known work. In Architect magazine, Thomas de Monchaux writes, “in its methodical synthesis of Utzon’s few built and many unbuilt works, in its application of underreported facts to well-worn legend, Andersen’s work is instantly indispensable.”
