The Bad Son

WE CAN'T KEEP THIS SECRET ANY LONGER. THE FUTURE OF SHOPPING IS IN YOUR HANDS. THE FUTURE IS AN APP CALLED DEPOP. IDEA BOOKS IS ON DEPOP AND HAS HALF A MILLION FOLLOWERS. HALF A MILLION! SEE HOW BAD WE ARE AT KEEPING SECRETS!


There is so much to say about Depop but the most fun thing to say is that it has over one million users and no one has ever heard of it! That really is the most fabulous position to be in. It was created two years ago in Italy. The company is now based in London. Its founder, Simon Beckerman, is currently in New York introducing the app to the Americas. Depop is on the App Store and Play Store for Android phones.
 

Everything old is new again. Macaulay Culkin photographed and photocopied by Harmony Korine for the 1990 superbook The Bad Son. Published by the Taka Ishii Gallery in Japan 1998 in an edition of only 1000. See more of the book here. Want The Bad Son badly? There is one copy on Depop as of right now! That's one copy and two ways to buy: Get the app / send an email.  
 

Happy days. 1998. In the first flush of the world wide web. Amazon and eBay were shopping. Now Instagram is the internet and shopping sounds like something your parents used to do. Depop is popular with 12-15 year-olds. Swapping is shopping. Get the app / let go of the laptop / leave comments. Love everything.
