Item description for John Warwicker: The Floating World: Ukiyo-E by John Warwicker & Michael Mack...

Inspired by ancient Japanese ukiyo-e artists and a polymath's myriad references, John Warwicker has for over 10 years been one of the most original thinkers in the design and creative industries. A founding member of Tomato, the innovative London design collective, he established an international reputation in the 1990s and has been formative in shaping popular media. The Floating World: Ukiyo-e is the first monograph on Warwicker's work. Rather than simply collect old work from commercial commissions and personal projects, Warwicker has written and designed an extensive, original book which only occasionally references prior work. He sets out to document his experiences in an authentic voice, mining the themes, ideas, histories, and memories which have informed and influenced him over the past 10 years. The result is a sophisticated and yet elegiac book constructed from his critical writings, photographs, drawings, films, prints, typography, poetry, and prose. Every text page is an original artwork, delicately constructed in layers of typography, and the interwoven illustrations confirm Warwicker as an innovative visual artist.
