In this modern age of technology and speed, what is taught in master crafter Nigel Armitage's renowned workshop follows a very traditional and timeless theme. Here, for the first time, he offers a learning resource and projects for leathercrafters who believe that quality matters, in how you make things and in the finished results. Enjoy learning the time-tested approach as Armitage helps you learn traditional techniques and projects that use them in modern ways. From beginner projects like a simple cardholder to intermediate projects like a tool roll, to advanced projects like a leather box, each project, while modern in terms of using new tools and materials, is still very much seated in the foundations of the craft.

Poster Man: 50 Years of Iconic Graphic Design
Poster Man: 50 Years of Iconic Graphic D... $39.99
This collection of over 140 curated posters by the revolutionary graphic artist Seymour Chwast provides context and insight into not only his five-decade career but the poster genre itself. Since founding Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Chwast's posters have been widely celebrated for their combination of subversive style and strong political satire. His caustic humor, graphic hand, and visual commentary cleverly synthesize in a way that is both wry and immediately understandable. Posters are arranged by type-Causes, Commerce, Information, Exhibits, and Lectures rather than chronology, which, along with the large format, invites readers to engage thematically with the designs. Commentary on each poster makes this a valuable resource for students, educators, historians, and all who appreciate the unique ability of posters to subvert notions of popular culture, politics, and design at once. Essays by Shepard Fairey and Steven Heller contextualize Chwast's impact on 20th-century design. Seymour Chwast is an American graphic designer and founding partner of the celebrated Push Pin Studios, whose revolutionary work altered the course of graphic communication and design. Since founding Push Pin Studios alongside Milton Glaser and Edward Sorel in the 1950s, Seymour's work has been endlessly recorded in every national and international design survey book. His work has been featured in the New York Times, the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, and The Atlantic, among many others. He maintains an active presence in the graphic arts and illustrators community and has had his work displayed in museums such as the MoMA, the Brooklyn Museum, San Francisco MoMA, Galerie Pompidou (Paris), Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Louvre), etc. Many of Seymour's most iconic posters, including his 1968 antiwar piece End Bad Breath as well as his 1967 Visit Dante's Inferno, were featured in the hit period drama, Mad Men.
