Books of the Month
It’s been a blinding week for new books in. We’ve not got a huge stock of some of these beasts so act now or be disappointed!
Launched at Beach on Wednesday, despite being out since Pick Me Up, this bumper book highlights ten years of the hugely influential collective. As we launched it, we’re giving away a super foilblocked leather bookmark, and a postcard pack, so no excuses! Makes a great gift for any illustration/art students too.
We had Zug #2 in and it was cool but not amazing. They’re really stepped it up with this one though. It grabbed our attention with a load of banana-based illustrators by total ruler Stefan Marx, and introduced us to some absolutely brilliant artists and illustrators. Super cool.
What more can be said about Peter Sutherland? He’s bloody everywhere, but it’s cool coz his work’s amazing. Nice to see an affordable, b+w zine by him, that really suits his throwaway style. Don’t miss this, it’ll go quick.
I love Shoboshobo. I helped him paint a wall for a show once and he gave me a drawing - ultimate day. His loose drawings are rad and you’ll be looking over this one for a while, trying to get your head round it. I saw it in Colette a few weeks ago and didn’t buy it and regretted it, but now we have them here! Yay!
Most people know Leo Fitzpatrick as the fucked up guy from Kids. He’s also a hugely influential artist in New York. Who’d’ve thought. This book is a beautiful bumper black and white collection of his drawings, collages and found images. It’s published by the amazing OHWOW. Don’t miss it.
Beautifully printed and thoughtfully made photo-zine that’s the second in a series. Really nice, don’t miss it.
Andrew Rae is always popular and it’s easy to see why, his work is really funny. This book is super clever too. Makes a great gift.
