(Remaining stock of the original edition (sixth printing), as later updated and expanded in 2009). Supply and Demand is the book that finally does justice to Shepard Fairey’s entire body of work, a massive retrospective covering 17 Years of this groundbreaking artist’s prodigious output. Through the lens of esteemed writers and critics such as Carlo McCormick, Steven Heller and Roger Gastman, Fairey’s work is seen for all its depth and placed in context as art, design, social experiment and “getting over”. This massive book pulls no punches and all areas of the enigmatic artist’s work, travels and travails are illuminated; from exhibitions, posters, flyers, silkscreens and stickers to high altitude pursuits, citations and police beatings, it’s all documented in a museum quality layout and binding. The evidence is in, and it’s clear that Shepard Fairey is not one to rest on his laurels, the work must go on. For both long time fans wanting the complete collection and those just curious to know what this OBEY business is all about Supply and Demand is the answer.
