With prologues by John Langdon and Adam Eeuwens, who are internationally active graphic designers and typographers, the about 120 pages book impress with high-quality photographs of Shoe’s artworks as well as with some great digital vector artworks.
A good idea was to shortly describe every motive in the end of the book, because often it is not comprehensible whether the writing was done by brushes or with a computer…
“Shoe revolutionized the art of writing with Calligraffiti, an art form that fuses calligraphy and graffiti. He launched this movement in 2007 with a successful solo exhibition in Amsterdam. Since then, his Calligraffiti pieces (signed NSM) can be seen in various international exhibitions.”
I really love “Calligraffiti”, because it contains a lot of amazing and very exactly and detailed artworks. It fascinates me to see, what Shoe is possible to do!
If you are interested in strokes, logos, calligraphy and/ or graffiti, you should buy that book – It’s amazing! Here are some insights:
