This post has been updated to reflect the new event details. (The original launch party had to be postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.)
This fall, Print is proud to release the monograph Mirko Ilić: Fist to Face, a visual biography of the iconoclastic Yugolsavian-born designer. On Wednesday, we’ll be joining the School of Visual Arts to celebrate with a book-launch party at SVA’s Westside Gallery in New York City. Books will be available for purchase, and Ilić will be on hand to sign them. This event, which takes place from 6 to 8 p.m., is free and open to the public, but we ask that you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Written by Dejan Kršić, Fist to Face traces Ilić’s formative years in Yugoslavia during the Communist-bloc era; his early illustrations for comic books and magazines; and his eventual move to the United States, where he quickly achieved notoriety as the art director of Time magazine’s international edition and The New York Times’ op-ed pages. For a sample of the book, see this exclusive excerpt published in the October 2012 issue of Print.
