I thought it would be fun to document the process of building a simple backpack. Typically this would take less than a day, but filming was a new experience for me and added additional challenges. The container was made from a left over 50lb rice bag, which is super light, durable and waterproof. I originally made the pattern for a small 16L Cordura day pack but I was curious to see how this material would work.
Did you know that beton is a form of concrete? It is the German word for a certain concrete, which has French origins. That may be why this 19th-century inspired slab serif also has modern connotations. Or maybe not.

Lovely collection of press kits from the manned moon landing 50 years ago
David Meerman Scott is the co-author of Marketing the Moon, which was produced by Scott-Martin Kosofsky. And, incidentally, this year is the 50th anniversary of the first (that we know of) manned landing on the moon. Mr. Scott has produced an invaluable resource.
