Yes, this is another of my catch up posts and it may also serve as a reminder to those of you thinking of submitting your t-shirts. If it were me and I had an awesome typography t-shirt I would definitely want to submit and would love to have my t-shirt printed in the book. What? OK, I should explain first. These guys see, they are going to make a book and then put photo of type tees in it and then sell it to loads of people. People who have created these tees will submit them, not for monetary gain, but for recognition (and a free book). Sounds cool to me. Read my copy and paste below or head over the the Typoshirt One page for more details.
TypoShirt One is about typography on T-shirts. It is definitely not the first publication that deals with the topic of “T-shirts”, but it’s the first one that focuses exclusively on the typography phenomenon in T-shirt culture. Only shirt motifs created explicitly with typographic means shall be presented in this publication. There are no fees, it’s totally cost free!
We would like to invite everybody to contribute to the book TypoShirt One, the typography T-shirt compendium. The book will be published at Index Books in 2010.
We invite everybody to submit their own projects for this publication, bringing together typographic designs of T-shirts from all over the world, showing quotes, sentences, words, letters and numbers or any other typographic pieces of work.
Participation or having work selected for TypoShirt One is totally cost free on your part. Also, if your work is selected, you’ll get a free copy of the book.
Deadline to enter your submissions is 19th of March 2010.
Please check our website. At http://typoshirt.magmabranddesign.de you’ll find all participation requirements.
I’m guessing from the name of the project that they are already considering more books. Very ambitious!
