New and questionable habits have me spending longer amounts of time than usual looking for useful things at Muji, and – at the other end of the money-for-small-objects spectrum – browsing expensive, and miniature Carl Auböck pieces from the online retailer OEN. Each are interesting and useful in their own way, and figuring out whether I can live without something I can certainly live without, is proving trickier than simply closing the laptop and walking away.

I've been looking forward to the release of this book for a while, and it is now finally available for pre-order online. However, if like me you happen to live in or near New York City you might consider waiting until November 7th, when an official launch party will take place at Patrick Parrish's Mondo Cane. Parrish is an avid collector of Auböck works, and acted as a producer during the books publication. Beautifully shot by photographer Clemens Kois and published by powerHouse Books, this catalog and study of the Auböck studio is an essential purchase for anyone with even a passing interest in the Viennese design house.
