Dead Battery by Andy Spade
This product is currently sold out.
Conceptual art and design book by Andy Spade. Spade’s handwriting is reproduced on the dedication page, framing an image of the artist with iPhone camera at the ready, his “arms stretched out in front of me [...] when suddenly my battery dies." What follows is a procession of uniformly-designed pages that recall some sort of uncanny photo album. The captions implicate scenes of "a man crying into his grapefruit," "redhead with a black eye." But the sheets are shaped by empty squares and fitted with clever captions that hint, presumably, at what the i-camera everyman glimpses at but never fully grasps.
Facsimile of author’s signature on dedication page.
Cover design by Sam Gray.
