Super-8-An-Illustrated-History

Despite the fact it was release more than half a century ago and has a motel chain and middling film named after it, Super 8 is one of the most storied motion picture film formats ever released. Beloved by an entire class of iconic filmmakers like Christopher Nolan, JJ Abrams, Spielberg and Tarantino, Super 8 is an old school format that still gets a lot of play to this day because its analog format adds a lot of character. That brings us to Super 8: An Illustrated History, a 150+ page, hardcover, coffee table art book that showcases the format through stunning photography while also being a detailed history of the analog medium that’s so beloved. Whether you’re talking about suburban dads, punk rockers or pop culture, many of the greats got their start with this medium and it endures to this day. Super 8: An Illustrated History is available for pre-order now, and it’s set for a release on June 9th.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
