New Book of the Week

Front Cover

Book Overview from Google: “Seattle-based design studio Modern Dog’s heady mix of cheeky humor and punk rock aesthetics makes them unique among design firms and a hell of a lot of fun. Gathered here for the first time is their groundbreaking work in poster design over the past two decades. Posters for theater, events, music, social issues, and self-promotion run the gamut of approaches and attitudes, but always reflects founders Mike Strassbuger and Robynne Raye’s distinctive eye. What’s more and unusual in a design monograph their text is laugh-out-loud funny on nearly every page. Interviews with Mike and Robynne by design luminaries James Victore and Rick Valicenti and an essay by critic Steven Heller illuminate the working methods of these creators of iconic and irreverent fin-de-si cle design.”
