Criterion Designs launch

    |    

New Yorkers, there’s a celebration of art and cinema taking place this evening, Wednesday December 3rd, 6:30pm, at Society of Illustrators (128 E 63rd Street): it’s the launch of the highly-anticipated Criterion Designs, a gorgeous new tome collecting the comissioned covers, concept art, and supplemental materials made by top illustrators for The Criterion Collection – which is, as I’m sure you know, an expansive series of important classic and contemporary films. Adrian Tomine and Leanne Shapton will join David Plunkert, Gregory Manchess, Yuko Shimizu, and Ron Wimberly to discuss the process of creating new art for great cinema. Conversation will be moderated by Eric Skillman and will be followed by a reception.

I’m afraid that tickets to tonight’s event are now completely sold out, but Criterion Designs is available at your local independent bookstore and is ready to be devoured by you and every other design-and-movies lover in your life. Alongside Adrian’s and Leanne’s work you’ll find covers by Seth, Dan Clowes, and more! Our Librairie D+Q has a preview up on their blog.
