PictureBox

Published by:
PictureBox

PictureBox is one of the most adventurous art publishers working today. Touted as a "Grammy Award-winning visual culture studio and publishing house" — after taking home the award for its 2005 cover design for Wilco's A Ghost Is Born — the Brooklyn-based company produces a lively assortment of books, comics, zines, posters, and apparel. Publisher, editor, and art director Dan Nadel co-founded the company in 1999 in order to publish the graphic-art zine The Ganzfeld, which recently put out its seventh, largest, and final issue. PictureBox also has a number of new and noteworthy counter-culture publications. The massive Gary Panter monograph contains everything you need to know about the design whiz behind Pee Wee's Playhouse, with one of the two volumes documenting 23 years of the titular punk cartoonist's sketchbooks. For the Love of Vinyl reproduces the album art of the dynamic British design firm Hipgnosis, which created iconic covers for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, and many others during the '60s and '70s. Meanwhile, Overspray covers the LA airbrush art market of the same era, focusing on four of the greats — Charles E. White III, Peter Palombi, Dave Willardson, and Peter Lloyd — who made ads, album covers, movie posters, and magazine pages pop with fantastic, hyper-real imagery.

PictureBox is exhibiting at Nada Art Fair Miami 2008 from December 3 to 7 and is producing the exhibition catalogue.
