ON BOARD

Leave a Reply

The usually weighty game of chess is having something of a pop cultural moment. A well received biography of the gifted and deranged Bobby Fischer was published last year; Pentagram just designed a whole new identity for the World Chess organization, and Graphic Chess is a fascinating new Tumblr blog devoted to chess-related art and design. And, not coincidentally, this whimsical DIY projectmade from a scrap of canvas and some paint–makes me want to fashion a portable chessboard, if not actually play the game.
