Unit Editions are notable for their collection of impeccable publications on contemporary design and visual culture. Recently, they have announced ‘The Archive Series’ which is a bibliographic celebration of graphic design archives and collections, and of course, we are extremely excited because the first title in the series is just about to be released and it is devoted to the miniature beauty of postage stamps.
Designing postage stamps is definitely not an easy task. This brand new publication offers an in-depth look into the lovingly assembled collections of two passionate stamp collectors and graphics designers: Iain Follett and Blair Thomson. Not only does the book serve as a showcase of the best in stamp design, Follett and Thomson also offer a brief historical overview of postage stamps and what makes this book so impressive is that Follett and Thomson have also unearthed the names of many little-known designers engaged in high-quality stamp design. The book is now available for pre-order and if you make an order now, you’ll also receive a set of 6 perforated postcards!
