MADE & SOLD | FL@33 BOOK
The book Made & Sold: Toys, T-shirts, Prints and Other Stuff is the second major publication conceived, compiled, written and designed by Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek at FL@33.
___ Official blurb: Made & Sold showcases an exciting selection of products created by a new generation of multi-disciplinary practitioners who split their time between self-initiated and commission or client-based projects. These passionate, young and independent design studios, freelancers and commercial artists are in many respects their own clients and design, produce, manufacture and directly sell – often online – to a potentially global customer base.
___ Features over 1000 pictures of over 500 products by over 90 practitioners from around the world, with emerging talents sitting alongside established artists.
___ Separate sections are devoted to 'Books, Magazines and Zines', 'Toys', 'Posters, Prints and Canvases', 'Fonts and Typographic 3D Products', 'Clothing', 'Accessories', 'Miscellaneous' and 'Contributor Profiles'.
(...) So, from all that, here are my ten books of 2009: Made & Sold (Laurence King Publishing)
___ Put together by design activists FL@33, this book looks at how artists, designers and illustrators have started making and selling their own products; mugs, tees, toys and prints. The trend has certainly made my job as a retailer more interesting. (...) Marc Valli, Creative Review, 2009 – a year in books
(...) The true beauty of self-initiated artwork and its different applications is captured here quite brilliantly by the creative team behind FL@33, and its various online guises. (...) The result is a spellbinding showcase of applied artwork, which captures the quirky and collectable nature of the products on display. Computer Arts Project, 130, November 2009
