Fashionize 2: Illustration Will Rule the World
Happy Books, Jan 1, 2007 - Art - 184 pages
Welcome to Fashionize 2 Illustration Will Rule the World, the newest release from Happy Books. Curated by the illustrious Italian illustrating duo of Cristiana Valentini and Gabriele Fantuzzi aka Delicatessen, this wide-ranging survey uncovers the permeating tendencies of images from commercial illustration and fashion design into the everyday fabric of our existence. Fueling the metamorphosis from sneakers to t-shirts, from wallpaper to clothes to furniture and household products, are some of the most imaginative and creative minds from Europe and Japan.
Cheeky and sophisticated, extraordinary but pragmatic, they create a world balanced between innovative, edgy design and the practical every day objects that somehow manage to escape the monotony of the strictly useful. Fashionize 2 exquisitely illustrates and exemplifies the essential role illustration plays into every design and creative field and platform.
