Sound Screen Design is a new product design firm located in Brooklyn, NY, and Artist Music Journals is perhaps their most important contribution to modern art books. Published once a month, the AMJ series offers contemporary artists, designers, and musicians the chance to design a 24 page, 10 inch, stitch sewn book. The books are in turn packaged in a plain white cardstock slipcase resembling a 10 inch record jacket, and sealed with a letterpressed, hand-numbered sticker replicating the artist's signature. Each edition is limited to 1000 copies.
Issue 1 features the work of LA based performance and design artist Jason Yates. Chop Suey Books is lucky enough to be one of the selected stores (15 total) to feature this title, so come in and get your collectable copy now!
