In a world in which screen-based graphics and digital design dominate the mainstream, creating design for print continues to thrive among an international community of like-minded individuals.

Written by Marcroy Smith, founder of the eponymous online resource, and Andy Cooke, his long-time collaborator, People of Print presents a dazzling array of work created for paper and beyond, including posters, flyers, packaging, fanzines, self-published books, textiles and fashion, and exhibition design. Fully illustrated profiles, in-depth interviews and a comprehensive reference section make this book an inspirational resource for all graphic designers and illustrators who appreciate the value and craft of print.
