New from Gingko Press, Supply & Demand: The Art of Shepard Fairey is a hefty $59.95 hardcover featuring more than 700 illustrations spanning the man's "Obey"-obsessive output from 1989-2006. It's "the book that finally does justice to Fairey's entire body of work," says the publisher, covering everything from "exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high-altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings." With appreciations by writers and critics including Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller and Roger Gastman, Fairey's work "is seen for all its depth and placed in context as art, design, social experiment and 'getting over.' " Seen here are some images and pages from the book featuring Fairey's trademark agitprop-stylized treatment of revolutionary figures. As he says, "People often become symbols that don't represent their real ideas or behavior. Advertising functions in a similar fashion by representing a romantic ideal that the use of a product will almost never yield." See www.gingkopress.com and www.obeygiant.com for more.
