libreria luca barcellona take your pleasure seriously paperback

Take Your Pleasure Seriously Paperback

Graffiti & Street Art Books

For Luca 'Bean' Barcellona, Italian graphic designer and calligrapher, letters are the building blocks of his creations. From Carolingian to tags, from the quill to the spray can, Barcellona takes the age-old craft of lettering to new heights with the inventiveness and talent of a contemporary virtuoso. His striking, expressive, and original letterforms and compositions open onto uncharted territory, laying the foundations of a new writing style. Take Your Pleasure Seriously (a quote by the designers Charles and Ray Eames) serves as a leitmotif for Barcellona who turned his passion into a way of life, first as a graffiti artist and then as a professional calligrapher. His production spans a broad spectrum from the reproduction of a world globe from 1569 to brand identities, book covers, ad campaigns, and performances. This beautifully designed artist book is the first monograph available on the work of Barcellona and features hundreds of drawings made over the last decade: commissioned work (Carhartt, Dolce & Gabbana, Nike, Red Bull, Sony, Universal and GraffitiShop as well!), personal projects, performances, and many never-seen-before work. The book will fascinate and inspire anybody who works with letters or is interested in how they look. Featuring texts by Charles 'Chaz' Bojórquez (famous writer and artist based in Los Angeles), Giovanni De Faccio (calligraphy teacher) e Nicola 'Dee Mo' Peressoni (Italian writng and rap music pioneer). Dimensions 23x33 cm More than 250 illustrations Brand new softcover edition!

Son of the Paris suburbs, Pro approaches to graffiti from an early age, preferring the RER A station benches, instead of the school benches. The book recounts his approaches to the world of Hip Hop, his desire to escape from the gray landscape of the Parisian suburbs, his first illegal parties in the underground tunnels, his stylistic evolution based on the meeting with the style masters like Bando, Mode 2 in Paris, Poem, Cope 2 and Wane in New York, Recto and Jaba in Liege.

All-round Artist, in the course of his career Pro176 dedicated himself to everything related to the purest form of writing, becoming a master in both its complex masterpiece productions, and in the art of Throwup and tagging, virtually present in every corner of any Parisian arrondisment, until the full consecration of his figure as an illustrator, exhibiting in many galleries in France, Belgium, Germany, England and Switzerland. The book traces his career from the beginning, step by step, documenting his stylistic evolution that, despite being strongly influenced by the 80s overseas style, has come to an evolution based on the passion for the geometry of the letters and the complexity of the unachievable space, which has transformed its pieces into real masterpieces. A must for those who want to deepen their knowledge into the most innovative lettering design of the last decade.
