If you are excited about summer, surf culture, rock and roll, and everything in between, then we have a book in mind for you. John Van Hamersveld (who we interviewed not too long ago
) has just released his book Fifty Years of Graphic Design.
This retrospective look at his practice as an iconic and prolific producer of graphic images rooted in all aspects of the West Coast counter culture provides insight and background to the stories behind each image and the various developments throughout his career. And it looks pretty sweet on the shelf right there next to that Dennis Hopper book. It's available at Arcana Books
. Published by our good friends at Gingko Press

To celebrate Keith Haring's retrospective, "The Political Line," opening at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this Fall (November 8, 2014—February 16, 2015), we are proud to close our 20th anniversary year with a cover story on one of the most influential and popular artists ever. Keith Haring is part graffiti, street art, fine art, activist, futurist, environmentalist, and came on the scene with one of the most original styles the world has ever, and will ever see.
