‘The postwar public art that became a symbol of the British modernist dream’

A wonderful feature on Simon Phipps’ Concrete Poetry in Wallpaper.

‘Phipps has compiled yet another weighty tome deeper than aesthetics and broader than brutalism. One thing Concrete Poetry resoundingly reaffirms is that brutalist sculpture continues to be as divisive as it is entrenched in the familiar landscape of postwar Britain.’

Out now! Times Like These

Happy publication day to David Ziggy Greene for Times Like These, his collection of graphic reportage from his Scene & Heard column in Private Eye.

The comics community is loving the book, with fantastic coverage from Forbidden Planet International (including a Director’s Commentary by David) and Bleeding Cool. Orbital Comics made it a staff pick!

‘Scene and Heard does the opposite of that soul-crushing dehumanisation that much of the modern media creates … Times Like These is a beautiful example of the power of the comics medium.’ Forbidden Planet International

‘[Times Like These] is a ride through humanity. Which, yes, is often hideous but the details are fascinating. Greene’s pen-line makes sure of that.’ Bleeding Cool

Super-fans can pick up a copy with an exclusive signed bookplate from Gosh Comics.

David Ziggy Greene’s reports will be on display during an exhibition at Orbital Comics from May 11th-31st, with a special signing and Q&A taking place on May 26th.

‘Scene and Heard does the opposite of that soul-crushing dehumanisation that much of the modern media creates … Times Like These is a beautiful example of the power of the comics medium to be used in different ways … Above all Times Like These is very, warmly human, and personal … It’s a fascinating series of snapshots of society, drawn – literally – from all walks of life.’
