We're really excited to show you Noma's brand new book, 'Bittersweet', a 680 page 5 volume monograph produced in a Limited Edition of 1000 published by Thames & Hudson. Noma has handpicked his most iconic illustrations and favourite works, each one displaying the distinctive style that has established his reputation. The works are organized into thematic chapters such as ‘Pretty Ugly’ (portraits), ‘In Out’ (sex), ‘Life Death’ (conflict), and ‘Less More’ (daily life). Alongside the images, Bar reveals his working methods and the stories behind his often idiosyncratic inspiration for different illustrations, and reflects on how his life experiences have shaped him as an artist. Encased in a specially designed slipcover box, and including a limited edition print, you can order a copy of Bittersweet here. We've also added some new work to our selection of Noma Bar prints, you can browse and buy all of Noma's work here
Noma's distinctive style has established him as one of the world’s most in-demand illustrators and an Outline Editions favourite. This series of portraits employ his trademark witty compositions, his subjects are both instantly familiar and, on closer inspection, filled with double entendres and visual puns. Rare, small editions, the prints are hand pulled silkscreen prints, signed and numbered by Noma in an edition of 10. Check them out here
Agathe Sorlet - New Releases
We're down to the last few in our editions of amazing optical illusion prints by Milan based artistic duo Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla (a.k.a Carnovsky). Using red, green and blue filters and a special RGB printing technique Carnovsky have created a series of prints that reveal secret images; when viewed through the opposing colour filter, layers of illustration in the prints come to the foreground, with the rest of the imagery becoming almost invisible, MAGIC!
Carnovsky, La Selva, Limited Edition of 20, RGB Print, 75 x 110 cm, £870 unframed, £1250 framed
As well as being beautiful stand alone pieces, the 'La Selva' series of prints have three hidden images. When viewed through a red filter you will see all the creatures of the daytime such as monkeys, a pelican, a toucan and hares, use the green filter and you will see the plants and foliage of the animals' habitat, the blue filter reveals all the nocturnal creepy crawlies and underwater creatures including spiders, alligators, bats and lizards. Available in two colourways, the paler 'La Selva' and the darker 'La Selva Notturno', we're down to the last few in the edition of each of these prints, so please do get in touch if you'd like one!
