Elmwood has created a promotional book called Free for paper manufacturer Scheufelen, showcasing favourite pieces of graffiti chosen by 40 designers from 12 countries. Contributors include Malcolm Garrett, Stefan Sagmeister and Swifty. Witty and ironic, but also angry and passionate, the images have been taken in ‘graffiti hotbeds’ such as New York and London, as well as Soweto and SÃ£o Paulo. Designed by Elmwood design director Alan Ainsley and designer Steve Shaw, the book launches at the end of the month. (Shin Sasaki, Tokyo, pictured.)
