Idea code 15619
EUR 51.40

The ultimate compendium of counterculture press in the United States and the Netherlands during the heady decades of the 1960s and ’70s, this volume is the definition of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. From underground pornography, free love, anti-establishment anarchism, and Provo, to anti-war protests, spiritual empowerment, the Black Panthers, and women’s liberation, it’s all here. Page after page of magazine covers, articles, advertisements, and clippings encapsulate the era when academia revolted, gays marched in the streets, and hippies wondered if Jesus got high, too.*Please note*: this book has four different covers and these are shipped randomly.

Na Kim - Set

For this book, fragments of her works are set in more or less personal categories, taking on a form reminiscent of a sample book. In contrast with other catalogues that are linked to an exhibition, published before the show’s opening, this book sketches the pre-exhibition content and establishes the guidelines for the imaginary stage set in the exhibition space.

A Book From Devalence

Isbn 9782917855621
Publisher Editions B42
Idea code 15548
EUR 26.55

The first publication about the work of the French graphic design studio deValence, this book examines their most recent works since 2012, as well as their long-term collaborations with artists such as Raphaël Zarka, Saâdane Afif, Mathieu Abonnenc, and Pierre Huyghe. Led today by Alexandre Dimos and Ghislain Triboulet, the studio’s work is notable in its intention to seemingly disappear in a process where form logically follows from the content. By way of a thorough analysis of several of their designs, overlapping elements of both avant-garde functional aesthetics and an austere classicism emerge in their work. With a text by Victor Guégan and an interview with deValence.

The Best Dutch Book Designs 2014

Isbn 9789059652897
Publisher Cpnb
Idea code 15533
EUR 30.35

However the result is reached, the selection of the Best Dutch Book Designs has for years no longer been simply a question of the finest printing or binding, nor of the best typography. Instead, it is a matter of weighing the relationship with the contents, chosen design, and technical execution. It is important to note how craftsmanship and attention to detail can influence the concept and aim of a book, and the way in which these are perceived. Every aspect of the process (preparation, selection, judging, observations, conclusions, etc.) is exhaustively covered in this small, brick-like volume, including illustrated insights into the more than 30 awarded titles.
