Meanwhile, Beppe Giacobbe

This week, I am mostly transfixed by the work of Italian illustrator/artist Beppe Giacobbe. He’s got an incredible portfolio of editorial work to his name, but what’s really caught my eye is this recent mixed media series of “accidental portraits”; print and collage and calligraphy all stirred together in exactly the right quantities. If higher praise were needed, I find myself scrolling through them, muttering should be a book cover … should be a book cover … should a book cover. If one of you art directors hasn’t seriously considered picking these up for a series design by the time I’ve finished this sentence, I’ll be very, very cross indeed.
