Calling all avid stamp collectors and those who appreciate good design, this book entitled Graphic Stamps: The Miniature Beauty Of Postage Stamps, won't disappoint. Compiled for Unit Editions by editors Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy, and Iain Follet and Blair Thomson, alongside design by London-based agency, Spin, the project is both beautifully presented and informative.
Unit Editions is a publishing venture driven by the ambition to create beautiful books that furnish the design community and those with an interest in visual culture.
Founded by Spin’s creative director Tony Brook and author Adrian Shaughnessy, Unit Editions "came about from a mutual desire to make books on subjects deserving of serious consideration, but that escape the gaze of traditional publishing houses."
Part of The Archive Series – a bibliographic celebration of design archives and collections, this publication dedicated to international stamp design pays homage to 'the forgotten gems of graphic design'. The jacket sleeve is printed in two Pantone colours and uses a four colour litho print. Discover more at spin.co.uk.
