THE WILD WORLD OF BARNEY BUBBLES. Graphic Design and the Art of Life

A Monograph on the era-defining graphic Designer Barney Bubbles, published to celebrate what would have been his 70th Birthday

The Wild World of Barney Bubbles celebrates a graphic design genius whose work linked the underground optimism of the 1960s to the sardonic and manipulative art that accompanied the explosion of punk. Barney Bubbles remains a powerful influence on contemporary artists almost forty years after his death. He created designs for Sir Terence Conran and underground magazines Oz and Friends, as well as remarkable record sleeves and posters for Billy Bragg, Elvis Costello, Depeche Mode, Ian Dury, Hawkwind, The Damned and Nick Lowe. He collaborated with artists and photographers, including Derek Boshier and Brian Griffin, and produced paintings, furniture, set designs and promo videos.

This expanded edition of Paul Gorman’s definitive Barney Bubbles monograph contains hundreds of rare and previously unpublished photographs, working sketches, notebooks and original artwork. It also includes new essays from Clarita Hinojosa and Kate Moross, as well as sixteen pages of rare ephemera painstakingly collected by the author over the years.
