A fabulous and rare collection of Piech’s work. Condition is good. There is some slight warping to the hardcover boards, and a few small dings. The binding is a little tight on the first few pages. Otherwise, in excellent condition with only light signs of use.
Official blurb …
The first monograph on acclaimed Brooklyn-born, UK-based designer Paul Peter Piech, this volume brings together 120 key works from the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the University of Reading in the UK. Having worked as a printmaker producing prints, posters and books for much of his career, Piech’s own pieces often carried stylistic traces of the advertising industry, giving his works a bold, rugged style that became immediately recognizable. His graphic images–sometimes joyful, sometimes angry, but always inventive–tackled the political concerns of the late twentieth century, imbuing them with his forthright personal beliefs (Piech was an ardent pacifist).
The Graphic World of Paul Peter Piech collects Piech’s most vibrant works, and includes a text by curator and art historian Zoe Whitley that traces the artist’s biography and stylistic influences, offering the reader a contextualizing vision for this influential designer’s career.
