TAT: INSPIRATIONAL GRAPHIC EPHEMERA
* tat (noun) - anything that looks cheap, is of low quality, or in bad condition; junk, rubbish, debris, detritus, crap, shite
Hows this for a coffee table book? An aesthetically pleasing book with thing regarded as displeasing inside its pages. To a graphic designer, most the content of Tat: Inspirational Graphic Ephemera can safely be regarded as 'bad' design. But there is some magic in each and every piece that has made Andy Altmann either pick it up off the street, trail through online links, or enter some dodgy looking shop on the other side of the world just to snap it up. Here you'll find everything from sweet wrappers to flash cards, from soap powder boxes to speedway flyers, from wrestling programmes to bus tickets. More tat than you can shake a stick at. Taken together, it represents a lifetime of gleeful hunting and gathering.
