The book suggestion of this week is about stickers and it is awesome. It's called Peel: The Art Of The Sticker and in my opinion it's a must have book for graphic designer because, if there is something that pretty much everybody loves that would be stickers.
Dave and Holly Combs traveled to New York City from Indianapolis, Indiana, to assist with September 11 recovery efforts. While exploring Manhattan during their off hours, they were inspired by the wealth of stickers they saw all over the city. These stickers made such an impact that the Combses started PEEL, the first street-art magazine with a focus on stickers. Documenting the evolution of PEEL from a black and white zine stuffed into plastic bags to a full-size, glossy, internationally distributed magazine, this book examines the development of sticker culture and how the magazine is linked with it.
