This past weekend, Illustration FT Faculty Lauren Redniss and myself attended the New York Art Book Fair and Conference at P.S. 1.
There were a zillion great things to see and here are some favorites:
- Playful, cheeky posters from Dutch studio Werkplaats Typographie: http://www.werkplaatstypografie.org/
- Keiji Ito’s estactic utopia complete with rainbow bathers by the pool, parrots, zebras, and lush lawns growing pecan cookies at Gallery 360 of Japan: http://www.360.co.jp/e/exhibition.html
- Amigos by Keliichi Tanaami reveals a sensibility kindred with acclaimed designer Tadanori Yokoo, whose work was also seen at the fair, both in familiar framed posters and in less familiar folios of silksreens printed with multiple shades of neon ink.
