GB Graphics Britain, a book that aims to represent Britain’s emerging graphic design talent, is published on 7 October by Laurence King Publishing, priced £25. Billed as capturing the energy of a new generation of graphic designers, the book claims to showcase the ‘coolest’ work on the British graphics scene. It includes work from Airside, Bump, Digit, Foundation 33 and others, across disciplines ranging from Web design, typography, video and animation. Both commercial work and experimental projects are featured. To coincide with its publication there will be an exhibition at Magma in Clerkenwell, London, featuring additional work by the consultancies represented in the book (work by Think 1 Design pictured). The exhibition runs from 7 October until 8 November.
