Anyone who made it to Shepard Fairey's May Day show, the final at Deitch Projects, remembers how striking the work looked against the gigantic white walls. Shepard's reinterpretation of the American flag were our favorite pieces from the show, one of them a cover of Gingko Press' new book, MAYDAY: The Art of Shepard Fairey, chronicling that very last show in May of 2010 at Deitch Projects. Book cover and spreads after the jump . . .

Just going to throw this out there: that is a scary-ass cover.

People know our opinion on Corey Arnold: his work has been featured in our photo issue, a full-feature, and the cover of our Juxtapoz Photo book.
