Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inside The World Of Board Graphics takes an in-depth, comprehensive look at the global nature and cultural influence of Surf/Skate/Snow board art and design. International design luminaries Art Chantry, Katrin Olina and James Victore are placed along side industry super stars Terry Fitzgerald, Martin Worthington, Yoshihiko Kushimoto and Rich Harbour (who has been shaping and designing surfboards since 1959). The book includes dozens of interviews and profiles from the people currently creating board art and design: Aaron Draplin, Emil Kozak, Morning Breath, Anthony Yankovic, Haroshi and Hannah Stouffer to name a few.

Introductions by Creative Director Marc Hostetter of TransWORLD SKATEboarding and Murray Walding, a regular contributor to Pacific Longboarder. There are many books about the art of board design, but there has never been a book like this that takes a rare look behind the scenes of the creative process.

Countries represented: Iceland, Spain, Japan, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Russia, Poland, UK, Mexico, Venezuela, Romania, South Africa, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Croatia and the USA, among others.
