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!

Scrivere Da Cani

Graffiti & Street Art Books

Scrivere da Cani, Spiner 1994 - 2014 is a project curated by Stefano Mariani e Filippo Nicolini around the style evolution of the Milanese graffiti writer Spiner. This book contains a selection of more than 450 archive images of bombings and tags of one of the main artists of the Lambrate area based TBC crew, shot over ten years. Spiner is unique in the way he identifies characteristic places to express himself. He’s unique for the constant research of his tools which is not limited to the classics offered by the writing discipline and for his expressive evolution, free from the constraints of creating readable texts. An attitude that guided him through the city like an animal marking its territory. The idea of an unreadable calligraphy - commonly associated to a ‘dog’s handwriting’ in Italian - inspires the title of the book ‘Scrivere da Cani’ and represents a personal point of view on contemporary writing, presented in its singularity within the Milanese scene of recent years. For those who already know Spiner and appreciate his style, this publication is a unique occasion to see an impressive quantity of his works reunited in one archive, organized in a chronologic order and following the evolution of his style. To those who may not know Spiner, this book represents a chance to discover one of the most hermetic and explosive talents of the Italian scene. A truly unique book that every lover of Milanese urban art should own. Spiner is a one of a kind and maybe the last true urban writer. The last of a dying breed of stray dogs. Introduction by Filippo Nicolini and foreword by Simone Pallotta. Photography by Stefano Mariani. Bind, 416 pages, 23x15,5 cm, 150 cover edition
