Published this week, I Like It What Is It? is a book of 30 detachable posters by Anthony Burrill and the stories behind them

 

Burrill has reworked many of his best-known posters for the book, as well as designing new pieces for it.  Each is printed on 355 x 279 mm board in one of three special colours plus black. The reverse of each poster has been left as grey board on which is text telling the story of each project by CR editor Patrick Burgoyne. The book itself was designed by A Practice For Everyday Life.

In this month’s CR Mark Sinclair writes about the move by graphic design publishers away from traditional book formats towards ‘products’ – I Like It. What Is It? is very much in that vein. Within its wraparound cover, each poster is bound so that it is easily removable for putting up on the wall. The book also contains several sheets of stickers.

In this film by Andrew Telling, Burrill and Burgoyne outline the thinking behind the book

 

 

An exhibition to coincide with the publication of the book will run at KK Outlet in London’s Hoxton Square from November 8 to 30.

I Like It. What Is It? is published by Laurence King, £19.95
