Item description for Lemon Poppy Seed: Multitasking Creativity by Robert Klanten & Hendrik Hellige...
The job description of graphic designers has changed. Classical graphic design is now being influenced by various design principles from the areas of typography, illustration, art and installation. Exciting work is currently being produced that is not necessarily created by graphic designers, but by independent spirits who work in interdisciplinary ways with a variety of skills. This new generation of talent is developing a visual vocabulary that is refreshingly off-key and inventing their own original design language. Lemon Poppy Seed is a compilation of work by these young, international artists. Their styles defy current trends and classifications and are all the more brilliant for doing so. The 272-page book takes readers on a whirlwind creative journey that proves that these newcomers are a creative force to be reckoned with. Lemon Poppy Seed is the perfect source for those who want to see the organic development of new artistic terrain before the mainstream attempts to erect shopping centres upon it.

Lemon Poppy Seed Jun 19, 2008
Anyone Googling "lemon poppy seed" for the recipe might be surprised to see this book pop up in the search. But, if you're an artist or designer in any of the visual fields, you'll find this 272 page softcover a breath of free air. The book design, by noted publisher Gestalten Verlag, is kept to a minimum. The only text includes the name of the artists, the title of the pieces, and the page numbers. There's also no introduction, artists' statements, interviews, manifestos, etc. to sway your opinions, allowing you to freely explore the terrain on your own. This international collection of contributors features spread after spread in lush colors and subtle muted tones. Any black and white art/photography has the full tonal range from 0 white to 100 black. If you liked the style and content of the soon-to-be-reinstated "GRAPHIC" magazine, but without all the tiny text, then you'll no doubt find these works inspiring. If only this were an exhibition catalog from a traveling show. That way, you might get the chance to see these works in person. [...]
