The Wild World of Barney Bubbles : Graphic Design and the Art of Music
Barney Bubbles - Book - by Paul Gorman
celebration of a graphic design genius, published to mark what would
have been his 70th birthday. Barney Bubbles' work linked the underground
optimism of the 60s to the sardonic and manipulative art that
accompanied the explosion of punk. He remains a powerful influence on
contemporary artists more than a quarter of a century after his death,
having created designs for Sir Terence Conran and underground magazines
Oz and Friends as well as remarkable record sleeves and posters for
Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello, Depeche Mode, Ian Dury, Hawkwind, The
Damned,Johnny Moped and Nick Lowe.
He collaborated with artists and photographers, including Derek Boshier and Brian Griffin, and produced paintings, furniture, set designs and promo videos. This revised edition of Paul Gorman's definitive Barney Bubbles monograph contains hundreds of rare and previously unpublished photographs, working sketches, notebooks and original artwork. It includes new essays and sixteen extra pages of rare ephemera painstakingly collected by the author over the years.
