    Hayley Kiyoko, Allie X

    “Lesbian Jesus,” aka LGBT hero Hayley Kiyoko Alcroft, walks on water. In girl group the Stunners, she began addressing her sentiments to the pop world as a queer woman. Then 2015 electro wave “Girls Like Girls” blew up with glitzy and loopy beats prophesying her experiences with love in the 21st century.

    Scott Specht: Coffee Lids

    Coffee … lids? Seriously, a fully illustrated compendium of the various types of disposable coffee-cup lids available in this world, as compiled by Specht and fellow architect Louise Harpman, including lively field guides to their classification system and patent drawings for the most unusual designs. It's a small book – just large enough for each of the many pages to hold the life-size image of a coffee lid – and yet the handsome volume is so graphically compelling that it's perfect for displaying on your … well, yes, on your coffee table.
