David King Stencils
Published by Gingko Press
David King created a legendary logo design for the foundational punk band Crass, dubbed the ‘double-headed snake and cross’. In the intervening years, he’s been busy. This long-overdue monograph features King’s iconic stencil-only designs, starting with the original Crass logo drawing and continuing to the present day. Both the artist’s process and finished output are on display in this revealing collection, from the covered-in-layers-of-paint stencils themselves to the drawings and designs outlining the thought process and ultimately the final art. Many of these works used multiple stencils and colors to create one-off finished pieces that you’re likely to find only within the pages of this book.
