BOOK - naive

ive been waiting ages, but at last i have a copy of 'naive - modernism and folklore in contemporary graphic design'. published by gestalten it features some P+P faves such as helen dardik, skinny la minx, darling clementine, jenn ski, and kate sutton. this book has no text at all except image titles and contact details, and the images are large on great quality paper. dont be put off by the words 'graphic design' in the title either - this is great for surface designers and illustrators. a must have addition to any bookshelf. see it here on amazon uk or amazon usa.
