Type designer Chank Diesel wants your bid. From now until Wednesday he is offering his “very early” Shepard Fairey collection on Ebay. “It’s a press kit he sent me back in 1994 and it includes a very rare early signed Andre print of his,” Chank told me. “I didn’t know it was such an important piece until I put it up for sale and people started emailing me about it.” In fact, from an pop culture and design historical perspective, Fairey’s early Andre work is the that bridge between alternative and mass culture. Even if you don’t want to bid, its worth a look.
Early Andre, a rare find?
