Between a handful of dedicated publishers and relatively inexpensive printing costs overseas, it feels like we are enjoying a golden age for art books. Some of our favorites these days are those that look like they were hit with the artistic version of Homer Simpson’s makeup gun. Take this 218-pager highlighting the work of 28 contemporary artists in metro Manila in The Philippines, for example. Start with that rainbow of ribbon place holders!
The cover’s gloss lamination makes it come to gorgeous, vibrant life, playing off nicely against the tracing paper belly band. Completely on a roll, what do they do next? Why throw in some pop-ups, of course because awesome!
