The celebration of the history of the photobook – noted in a previous Critique – continues to produce volumes of spectacular ambition and panoramic sweep. The latest arrival, The Japanese Photobook 1912-1990 by Manfred Heiting and Ryuichi Kaneko, is a 570-page shelf-buster to set alongside Heiting’s previous project, The Soviet Photobook (2015), also published by Steidl, and The Chinese Photobook (2015) by Martin Parr and WassinkLundgren, published by Aperture.
For decades, designers who wanted to engage in graphic agitation had an almost unvarying recourse: they poured their passion into a poster. Competitions were organised, sometimes annually, to encourage design stars to make their graphic comment for a worthy cause. However well this may have worked as a strategy in the past, it is hard to believe that a stand-alone image, no matter how fiercely executed, can have much impact in today’s media landscape.
At the Kemistry Gallery in London there is a rare opportunity (until September 27) to see film posters by the German graphic designer Hans Hillmann , who died in May. While many of these modernist designs will be familiar to those who know the history of German design, they are not well known in the English-speaking world. The exhibition, curated by Isabel Stevens, production editor of Sight & Sound magazine, is Hillmann’s first in the UK.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
