Brings together, for the first time, every one of Peter Saville's limited edition artworks produced between 2003 and 2018 Peter Saville's influence is incomparable. One of the most important British graphic designers and art directors working today, he first came to prominence in the late 1970s when he designed the many record sleeves for Factory Records - most notably for Joy Division and New Order. Saville's enviable list of clients have included Roxy Music, Ultravox, Peter Gabriel, Pulp, Suede, Whitechapel Art Gallery, The Pompidou Centre, Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander, Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, Mandarina Duck, Givenchy, Selfridges, EMI and Adidas. Working extensively in fashion and the cultural sector, his work is credited with significantly influencing the interplay between art and design. Recent commissions have included re-designing the Calvin Klein logo and the Burberry logo. For the last 16 years he has collaborated with London art gallery, Paul Stolper, to produce a significant body of work. It includes both works on paper and sculpture, using a large variety of techniques and materials, including silkscreen printing, inkjet printing, tapestry, perspex, neon and resin. This work draws on much of his existing seminal graphic work to create variations on themes and works. This publication, produced in both limited edition and collector's edition formats, includes two volumes, one of his solo work and one of his collaborative works with Anna Blessmann. The two books have been designed by Saville himself and are presented in a slipcase.
