Experimental Jetset | The No-Thing

Experimental Jetset
The No-Thing
San Francisco, USA: The Thing Quarterly, 2017
48 x 68"
Edition size unknown


Issue #32 of The Thing Quarterly is a 100% cotton, machine-washable wearable protest blanket. The Made in the USA blanket is reversible, with one side reading NO! and the other ON!. It is by the Amsterdam graphic design studio named after the 1994 Sonic Youth LP Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star*

It's available on back-order from the publisher here, for $125.00 US. Items are expected to ship later this month.

Above are images of the blanket in use from last week's anti-Trump protests.

* The plan was originally to borrow the name International Jetset from a song by The Specials but when registering it with the Chamber of Commerce a clerk said it was too vague. The group switched it on the spot.
