In collaboration with some of the world's best photographers and picture archives, Sonic Editions makes limited, high-quality framed photo prints of some of the greatest musicians, film stars, and cultural icons the world has known. Using the same printing techniques as fine art galleries, each photo is hand printed to order on Fuji crystal archive paper, numbered and certified, and comes encased inside a hand-made solid wooden frame that's ready to hang.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, graphic designer Scott Reinhard combines vintage maps with elevation data to create stunning pieces of art. Reinhard uses a chromogenic process to create each print, which takes traditional color photography development and integrates 3-dimensional data with paper maps for a result that is so visually appealing, you'll be tempted to reach out and feel what looks like 3D texture. The process brings the maps to life, creating a 2D print that is vibrant and detailed giving you a unique work of art that blends history and modern technology. In addition to the topographic maps, Reinhard creates compelling digitally rendered maps and has even adopted his technique to the surface of the moon.
Immortalized on screen by Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, Vuarnet's The Dude sunglasses will add some laid back vibes to your summer wardrobe. Dubbed model 03, the silhouette was originally launched in 1962 and was inspired by the oversized aviators of US Air Force pilots. The frames are made from a tough shape memory nylon for comfort and have integrated monobloc hinges as well as a removable bridge insert, while the grey polar lenses offer maximum protection against glare whether it's coming from the sun or your lighter. Made in France.

In 2016, the Tactica Talon became the highest funded multitool in crowdfunding history. Using the feedback from thousands of backers, it's since been improved and rechristened the Tactica Original. Packed into its 3.1-inch case that can be attached to a key ring are a multitude of tools, including more than a dozen wrenches (imperial and metric), a bottle opener, a package opener, a ruler, hex sockets, and both Phillips and flathead bits. It's TSA compliant, so you can leave it in your pocket while flying, and its hardened steel core is wrapped in a lightweight composite that won't scratch your phone's screen.
