Description

Product Description

One of The New York Times Best Entertaiment Gifts of 2019
New York Magazine''s Most Giftable Coffee-Table Books of 2019

From street fashion to high culture, the work of Virgil Abloh, a celebrated multihyphenate artist, is showcased in this book.


For Abloh, the museum catalogue is another opportunity to "question everything." This monograph, produced in close collaboration with the artist himself, explores his creative output in a three-books-in-one format. The catalogue section offers an overview of Abloh''s interdisciplinary practice by Michael Darling and features essays and interviews with key voices in art, fashion, design, and architecture, including Taiye Selasi, Lou Stoppard, Michael Rock, Samir Bantal, Rem Koolhaas, and Anja Aronowsky Cronberg. In the archives section, more than 1,800 never-before-seen images pulled from the artist''s personal files reveal the remarkable breadth of his influences and collaborations. And the index cross references the catalogue plates--Abloh''s works--with his projects and process, using a vocabulary of themes developed by Abloh. This book is designed with Swiss binding. When opened the front cover lays completely flat and is not attached to the front pages of the book. The binding also intentionally exposes the spine of the bound book and the raw boards used for the case (cover).

Review

"The show’s hefty, excellent catalog embraces this spirit, deploying a titillating level of detail."– The New York Times

"When Virgil Abloh breathes, his CO2 is practically up on eBay the next day — so we imagine his new book,  Figures of Speech... won’t be long for this world." – New York Magazine

"Figures of Speech
 is packed with 1,932 images and a number of essays which discuss race, contemporary art history, streetwear and more. Altogether, the Prestel-produced book spans 496 pages and features a fittingly minimalist hardback cover."– HypeBeast

"...the object that is really worth coveting is the book. More than a simple catalog it’s a 500 page User’s Manual to his career." – Core77

“Expect it to fly off the shelves like freshly baked cookies” — Buro

Designer and creative director Virgil Abloh has a new coffee table book you''ll want to make space for in your living room. A particularly cool addition to your coffee table or bookshelf..." – AIROWS

I just gave this to my son as a gift the other day, had it in a drawer for almost 2 months prior waiting for present time, already warped and falling apart. Pretty dissatisfying. He literally has looked at it twice since and then this happened. Don’t recommend at all. I don’t see an option to exchange or return either. It made me choose one star. I give zero

The book is dominated by pictures showing his work and inspirations, but Virgil also includes great written insight into the thought process behind some of his creations. I thought it was so cool to look through his early sketchbook drawings and school assignments, and then hear his take on them and why they shaped his perception of the world today. Despite knowing the level of success Virgil has achieved in his career, the inclusion of his early stage work made everything he''s done seem realistically achievable with the right work ethic, and it left me feeling very inspired.
