I’m thrilled that my good friend and co-blogger D.Billy has artwork in a very cool new book! He hates promoting himself, so I’m going to have to do this for him, like it or not. The book itself looks really cool, and I’m proud of him for getting into the thing.
“Proud,” though, it connotes a certain condescension. Frankly, I’m happy and just a little jealous, minus the destructive aspect of jealousy. I’m hapealous. But whatever. Here’s the book and a blurb:
In such a digitally dominant world, Gestalten’s new book, Tangible: High Touch Visuals, is a reminder of the pleasure of the physical. Tangible is the third in a series of books starting with Hidden Track: How Visual Culture Is Going Places (2005) and Tactile: High Touch Visuals (2007) and explores the trend towards designers creating dioramas, sculptures and other physical environments.
The above photo and blurb come from a Designer’s Review of Books, and you can read more about the book here. David’s artwork featured in this book got us a lot of attention last summer, and it’s really awesome to see an Internet traffic spike turn into a real thing that you can put on your coffee table and use to impress your friends.
Beyond that, the art featured in the book is fun, funny, and thought-provoking …
Enough with the hard sell. If you want to buy a copy, you’re gonna buy it. We hope you do.
