People of Print Book :: Innovative, Independent Design and Illustration

posted by Anna Chayasatit August 5, 2015

We are proud to present our first-ever hardback on highly influential print design produced using the combination of printmaking techniques, styles, and materials. This new glorious tome, entitled ‘People of Print’, serves as a powerful compendium of cutting-edge work created in the age where endless streams of mediocrity contribute to the rapid growth of digital culture. This book, on the other hand, offers an eye-opening look into the brains and minds that have made an imprint on contemporary visual culture in the real, physical world.

‘The People of Print book’ is an inexhaustible source of inspiration published with timeless aesthetic value. It is perfect for designers, illustrators, both up-and-coming and professional, or anyone who share a common aim to keep print alive. Found within the 336 pages are in-depth interviews, print techniques, stories, comprehensive references, and beautiful works and illustrations passionately crafted by over fifty of the hottest independent artists, designers, and illustrators from all corners of the world.

Highlights include works made to adorn posters, flyers, packaging, zines, self-published publications, textiles, to name but a few, by Anthony Burrill, Mojoko, Killer Acid, Fingersmith Letterpress, Carnovsky, FrenchFourch, Age of Reason, And Atelier, Heretic, Prensa La Libertad, Ben Rider, Broken Fingaz, and Fatherless who have also produced ‘the limited-edition book sleeves’ for us.

Not only does the book celebrate the art of traditional printmaking but this latest title also endeavours to raise community engagement within the worldwide print industry. This is one of the most brilliant compilations of inspirational print design ever assembled – definitely a valuable addition to the canon of contemporary design, art and visual culture.

The People of Print book is co-authored by People of Print’s founder Marcroy Smith and designer Andy Cooke and published by Thames & Hudson. It is now available for purchase via our Department Store.
