Unit Edition’s latest book focuses on Tony Brook’s Spin studio and it’s 520 pages of excellent content that go above and beyond your typical monograph. Armin Vit, Brand New
Spin: 360º is a portrait of one of London’s leading design studios. It is a 520pp monograph that looks in mouth-watering detail at every aspect of Spin’s work in identity, print, moving image, retail, digital and environmental graphics, as well as the studio’s self-directed activities in publishing, curating and collecting.
But it isn’t just the usual image dump of work. In fact, it’s the studio monograph reborn for the 21st century: honest, revealing and bursting with specially designed and art-directed content. Above all else, it’s a guide to survival, growth, and maintaining creative excellence over 20 years.
As well as interviews and essays by Spin’s two founders – Tony Brook and Patricia Finegan – the book has texts by Paula Scher, Stefan Sagmeister, Ben Bos, Wim Crouwel, Rick Poynor, Steven Heller, Patrick Burgoyne and artist and author Edmund de Waal.
A year in the making, Spin: 360º is Unit Editions’ most ambitious book to date. It’s essential reading for anyone who wants to lift the lid on a successful creative studio.
