For the past twenty-five years, graphic designer John Gall has designed award-winning books and covers for the likes of Dave Eggers, Haruki Murakami, and Vladimir Nabokov. John Gall Collages 2008-2018 is a collection of personal and commissioned artwork by the designer. The collage work—which began as a personal pursuit to expand his way of visual thinking—soon became its own form of artistic expression. Through a popular Instagram account and a Tumblr, the work has gained legions of fans around the world. This book, the first to document this work, is an intimate look at Gall’s personal artistic explorations as well as a visual dialogue with world we now live in.
With a foreword by New York Times Book Review art director Matt Dorfman, this book also includes five years’ of Gall’s illustrations for the Times.
