I have a great book that just landed on my desk called Pulled – A Catalog of Screen Printing by Mike Perry published by Princeton Architectural Press. Have you come across it yet? If you love screen-printed works of art with a focus on modern, graphics and bright colors this book is for you. Pulled is a big boy — a hefty 250+ pages and contains over 40 of Perry’s favorite designers to, “Remind us that there are some things you just can’t achieve with digital printing”, which is so true. There are so many things that the digital world won’t be able to replace and that’s fine with me, I like diversity – especially when it comes to art, don’t you?
This inspiring collection of work (it’s not wordy, it’s more about the eye candy) introduces you art that Perry has curated with a brief bio along with a few pages showing some work from that particular artist so you can get a sense of their portfolio. I enjoy the book because I’ll use it as a reference and since I found a few new names that I’d not heard of before — I always enjoy finding new talent to be inspired by. Here are some spreads from the book so you can catch a glimpse.
If you are looking to find some great artists then Pulled is a beautiful collection that will provide you with many from all over the world. It’s a very straight forward guide that I’ll enjoy for years and a huge congratulations to Mike Perry on his third book! Well done!
I wish everyone a nice weekend, see you on Monday!
