Latest book design by Studio EMMI, Peepshow Collective, is a chance to delve into the Peepshow imagination, scanning collective and individual work from the past decade and glimpsing future directions. It's also a rare chance to see behind the pixels, an interview with all of Peepshow's members offering their take on where they start, when they decide to stop, and what happens in between.
Peepshow has achieved a rare alchemy: corralling a set of unique visual talents into a cohesive, and hugely influential, collective. Over the past decade, the London based group have worked across illustration, animation, set design, textiles and art direction for such clients as the Victoria & Albert Museum, M&C Saatchi, BBC, The New York Times and SHOWstudio, while also creating their own work for books, exhibitions and events worldwide. They’ve represented the best of British image-making at expos for The British Council and The Museum of Modern Art in Japan, and have featured in shows at the ICA, the Hayward Gallery and Somerset House.
Despite, or because of, their focus on the individual, Peepshow as a group have become a force to be reckoned with. Instead of fitting themselves into a pre-existing mould, the ten members have together created their own market.
254 pages, over 600 illustrations with interviews and essays by Alex Bec, Graham Rawle, Margaret Huber and Peter Nencini.
