We are very pleased to invite you to take part in a new book on design by Steven Heller and Mirko Ilic (www.hellerbooks.com / www.mirkoilic.com) on the myriad ways designers, illustrators, photographers and art directors have involved the human body in graphic, advertising and typographic design.
This is the first book to undress design and show the body in all its forms is used realistically, symbolically, aesthetically, yes, and pruriently. We are looking for all printed media, for virtually any commercial or editorial purpose.
We know of a lot of material that should be recognized that plays an important role in mass, cult and other communications. We see this as a kind of, no pun intended, anatomy of design anatomy (we did a book called The Anatomy of Design).
The book, Design Exposed (working title only), is published by Rizzoli USA for Winter/Spring 2017-18 but our reseach and gathering window is open now. Please be part of this project.
We are also looking to organize a traveling exhibition of the original prints to both promote the book, work and designers that are featured in the book. This is not a priority for submitting to the book. However, if you wish to participate in the exhibition, please mail a copy of the actual print (no printouts please) for inclusion in the show.
Unfortunately we will not be able to return the original work back to you. There is no rush to send us physical printed pieces, but we will expect to receive them within the next few months. If we do not receive your physical work, we will assume you do not wish to participate in the exhibition.
Deadline for complete submission is October 3, 2016.
Submitted designs must be published work, no student and personal work, please.
We are looking forward to hearing from you.
For any further questions please email us at: email@example.com.
