American Illustration 36

UNBOUND  #Resisttheorder

For its 36th annual hardcover volume that presents the year’s best images by established, emerging and upcoming startists!, American Illustration thinks “outside the book” by presenting the pages in unbound form, challenging the viewer to rediscover what a bound collection can be. It all looks normal, until you open the die-cut, windowed cover and find that the pages - and the artwork - are at your disposal to behold, fathom, rearrange, indulge, consume, hang up and share at your own pace. Unscrew the posts and have it. We dare you!

AI36, under the creative direction and design of Matt Vee of Pengiun/Viking, makes the adventure worth it by offering the winning images in big, bold, generous layouts with many full-page bleeds and even a few “double-wide” spreads that extend over 24”. It’s a grand affair that celebrates only 373 of the most charming, thought-provoking, insightful and provocative pieces as selected by a jury of art and design experts from just over 10,000 images submitted to the annual competition.

Who’s on the cover? You decide. AI36 starts out with interior artwork by Dutch artist Merijn Hos, but allows the reader to switch out the cover image. Choose your favorites and rotate their art on a whim to fit any mood, a pending assignment or just to match the drapes.

AI36, at 392 loose, die-cut and scored pages, is wrapped in textured black cloth, hardback die-cut and windowed cover, with holographic foil stamping and gilded edges. The binding includes metal posts with removable screw heads for repagination and magnet closure.

For the discerning art director, designers, educators, students and art lovers alike, American Illustration 36 is the most captivating gallery in print.
