Oh boy. Issue #9 of Actual Source's 'Shoplifters' is a MONSTER, both in content and size. Titled 'Drawings', this A4, 2kg, 535-page whopper contains the work of 40 artists who like to draw. Included in the roster of top-notch pencil pushers are:
Geoff McFetridge, Adam Higton, Jee-Ook Choi, Ken Kagami, Cynthia Alphonso, Juliana Cho, Stefan Marx, Milton Glazer, Aaron Jupin and Alice Wietzel.
Better still, this beautiful beast of a book has been printed using fluorescent inks as a replacement for cyan, magenta, and yellow, giving these drawings the vibrance and saturation of the original pieces. It is beautiful!
Shoplifters is a bi-annual publication published by Actual Source, which champions the work of graphic designers, typographers, artists, illustrators and writers.
So lovely to see the adventures of Adam Higton's Florian produced on a lovely factory yellow paper stock.
