Shoji Aminaka and Eri Matsuse have been working on their A-Z pendants for a minute and finally revealed the entire alphabet to us today. Back in March we only had the letters Y-O-K-A to play with - which even after much letter jumbling doesn't spell much at all (Eri and Shoji live between Tokyo and New York and are still, as it happens, working on their English). Their new joints are just as randomly absurd and insanely collectible as they were to begin with. In some cases you can follow the inspiration trickle right back to its source (F for Frankenstein!) but as for the rest...we think a Lord of the Rings DVD box set might have something to do with it. Snag your own at Toff in Miami and Gito in Englewood, NJ.
