The founder of design firm Thirst/Chicago, Rick Valicenti recently art directed this incredible book using the photography of Francois Robert from his series Stop the Violence. Each spread features an individual letter from the alphabet—compositions made of human bones arranged by Robert—in juxtaposition with a page from President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech from 2009. I just got my copy in the mail and the book is truly stunning. It’s 36 pages and over a foot tall. How much would you be willing to pay for such a killer publication?
It’s free. Whoops, looks like you folks snapped up the last few copies. Published by Classic Color.
