Unit Editions is a progressive publishing venture that produces books and other lovely printed materials for graphic designers, by graphic designers. I was recently reading their Spin Papers 2 & 3 which are absolutely wonderful (and wonderfully designed), and checked back on the site to find yet another item to put on my want list: Supergraphics, the latest book from UE.
Supergraphics – Transforming Space: Graphic Design for Walls, Buildings & Spaces chronicles the early days of Supergraphics and looks at work by leading contemporary practitioners – a significant number of whom are women. It concludes with a glimpse into the future by analysing the work of a new generation of digital artists and tech-savvy architects who are de-materializing buildings with the aid of computer technology, and in so doing, albeit unwittingly, keeping alive the original utopian intentions of the pioneers of Supergraphics.
You can pre-order the book now, which will only be available at the Unit Editions shop.
