Item description for Handmade (Poster Collection) by Claude Lichtenstein...
Even after the emergence of clean digital design, graphic artists still like to get their hands dirty. Poster Collection 11: Handmade, the latest in the series from the poster collection of the Zurich Museum fr Gestaltung, presents both international and Swiss works whose makers have used their own hands for a variety of reasons--autonomy, spontaneity, independence, or delight in experiment. This might manifest itself in turning the current idiom on its head with analogue processing of a digital aesthetic or, more radically still, in the inclusion of solids and other material in the making of the poster or in duplicating by hand. Nevertheless, these works are a long way away from retro-romanticism. Contemporary, cutting-edge design arbiters like Stefan Sagmeister and Cornel Windlin show you how it's done. Essay by Claude Lichtenstein. Paperback, 6.5 x 9.5 in./80 pgs / 70 color.
