If you attended Mondo’s gallery show a few weeks ago, you might have seen the new book, Mondo Vol. 1.
Creative Director, Justin Ishmael describes how the book came about:
“I was at a friend’s house earlier this year and noticed a book he had by Jay Ryan. It was full of posters…. actual pieces of the screenprinted posters. I thought about the giant stack of returned posters we’ve gotten over the years and figured this would be a great way to get those out as we were moving to the new space and didn’t want to transport them. So, we began to go through the giant stack and pick out which ones we wanted in and in what order they should go. We found a local binder and had him cut them down to size and over several weeks we hand put these books together. It was an intricate process.”
The books are limited to just 105 copies and are bound in 100% leather. They will be put up for sale on Mondo’s site tomorrow and will cost $200. Follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement.
