About Swimming in Puddles


City planners try to prevent puddles on city streets and pedestrians do their best to avoid them. However, swimming feels great and the idea that you could swim in a puddle, a thin layer of water that has an arbitrary shape determined by the form of the sidewalk, seems impossible. Often things that Mike and Yuri assume have only one particular use, or no seeming use, can hold other possibilities. Coincidental forms and shapes can have hidden potential. This book contains some of the making, questioning, and other unrelated, but to them, equally fascinating things they’ve discovered along the way.

About Postalco

You detect something of a quest for perfection in Postalco’s work. A sliver of imagination that sticks itself into something not quite good enough and prises it open, revealing new territories within.

Postalco’s very first project began in just such an inquisitive way. Bag designer Mike Abelson found the bag of his partner, graphic designer Yuri Abelson, stuffed with awkwardly bent papers from her work. He set about making a better carry case for her papers, which resulted in the Postalco legal envelope. Soon enough, they packed their bags and swapped New York for Tokyo, in order to be closer to the artisans responsible for crafting their distinctive products.

Material values
Postalco products are often materially dependant, reflecting a precise history of the leather, brass, cotton and fabric with which they were made. We were drawn to these objects from the moment we saw them. From the moment we began stocking Postalco in 2010, we found the Ableson’s work special – touching in is desire for longevity and engaging in its aesthetic sensibility.

We’re a proud stockist of Postalco, and Misc Store has been carrying them since we first opened in Amsterdam. If you’re in the Netherlands, come and visit Misc Store to get a feel for these supremely tactile objects.
