* A poster book containing 30 detachable posters made by architect and designer Federico Babina* Each poster is a work of art on its ownArchist is a playful interpretation of the expressive language and aesthetics of some of the world's most popular artists. For example, Babina tried to imagine what a house designed by Dalí or a museum conceived by Miró would look like. The illustrations represent an imaginary and imagined world of shapes. Federico Babina finds great pleasure in imagining architecture designed and constructed through the interpretation of an artist's language. The book shows that there is a symbiotic relationship and implicit partnership between architecture and art. A sculpture is like micro-architecture, a facade can become like a painted canvas and a building can look like it was shaped by a skilled sculptor. The posters in the book manage to catch the essence of the oeuvre of the artists in question. As a consequence, the posters are much more than mere decoration; they become a playful piece of art history.Federico Babina is an Italian architect and graphic designer who lives and works in Barcelona. He tries to rediscover the world through the eyes of a child: spontaneously, uninhibited and without being conditioned by experience. Federico Babina expresses himself through different techniques, styles and shapes. He likes the richness of language and the diversity of its forms. Drawing and illustrating allow him to describe and visualize his thoughts, feelings and emotions. Every image tells a story, every image is a story's witness.

Dalek, aka James Marshall, is one of the most exciting artists to emerge from the burgeoning Brooklyn art scene in a long while. This 30 something, artist received a BFA at the art institute of Chicago in 1995, but it seems he takes as much inspiration from street art, graffiti culture and television as he does from his formal education. In his diverse career that spans over a decade Dalek has worked as an assistant to Takashi Murakami, studied art and biology, and exhibited widely. His artwork has been shown at London's Apart Gallery, A life in New York, and The Museum of Contemporary Art in Washington DC, to name just a few. Nickel Plated Angels is a comprehensive collection Dalek's drawings, illustrations, graffiti and photographs. It's a stunning first monograph that offers the reader a very personal journey into Dalek's strange world, a challenging place where the Space Monkey reigns supreme.

The mid-1980s were the first time people began to speak about "German Designers." The old labels no longer exist, Joop now does Wunderkind, the Igedo fair is called CPD, and instead of traveling to the Munich Fashion Week you go to the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin, but the scene's self-confidence grew--full of verve, its aim was to advance awareness of the history of German fashion, which had begun with the studios near Berlin's Hausvogteiplatz and reached a glamorous zenith with the post-war designers Oestergaard and Richter. Today, the annual sales volume of the German clothing industry is about 20 bn Euros, with exports ranging near 40 percent. Labels like Hugo Boss have stores all over the world. How did this all come about? When was which fair first launched, what is the story behind Bogner and James Bond, who is the Indian woman Megha Mittal, who saved Escada? A reader about German fashion, its developments, trends, and its prospects.
