Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing

Parsons Illustration adjunct faculty member Mike Perry has just published a new book–Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing.  Pulled is a collection of design by various different designers working in the medium of screen printing:

“Popularized in the 1960s by Pop artists like Andy Warhol, screen printing remains a favorite among artists due to its versatility, duplicability, and relatively low cost. In Pulled: A Catalog of Screen Printing, best-selling author Mike Perry (Hand Job, Over and Over) collects the work of more than forty of today’s most talented designers who are, in their own way, pushing the boundaries of this dynamic medium.”                                               – description from Mike’s website

Mike is also the author/curator of Hand Job: A Catalog of Type, and Over & Over: A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns.

An exhibition related to the book’s release is at Yes Gallery in Cincinatti, OH through July 27th.

Here this a short documentary about Chicago-based screenprinter and musician Jay Ryan. Besides being a former member of the band Braid and a current member of the band Dianogah, Jay is well known for his limited-run, hand-printed posters for events and bands. You might recognize his work from Andrew Bird’s recent album, Andrew Bird and the Mysterious Production of Eggs (below) as well as countless gig signs and illustrations.
