Title: Supernew Supergraphics [Unit 16]
Editors: Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
Edition of 2000
Unit Editions’ Supernew Supergraphics follows their sell-out 2010 title Supergraphics. The format of the book throws the reader into a captioned list of illustrations that doubles as a contents page which allows the supergraphics to be shown at their best, spanning across the thick book’s double-page spreads.

The book’s minimalist cover, a wordless homage to the Supermannerists in the form of graphic blue stripes, slips into a sleeve of contrasting stripes, both printed on unassuming raw cardstock. The book functions as a beautiful object as well as an excellent introduction to this innovative field – an excellent jumping-off point for further research, exploration and inspiration.

Supernew Supergraphics is a collection of the best architectural, environmental and interior graphic design. This all-new book shows how the current generation of designers and architects are blasting typography and graphic forms across walls – even landscapes. Grain Edit
Supernew Supergraphics reflects the numerous ways in which graphics are invading public spaces and disrupting the sometimes-staid world of public architecture.
It’s a compendium of graphic excess on a monumental scale. It features new work from around the globe, and interviews with leading practitioners Felice Varini, Sascha Lobe, Sara De Bondt and Boa Mistura.
The book’s design by Spin is a tour de force of graphic expression. The cover pays homage to the originators of Supergraphics in the 1960s – a group of radical architects who broke the unwritten rule that you never paint on architecture.
Not only did they apply paint to architecture, but they always made sure the graphics were too big for the surfaces they were applied to. This is echoed in the cover for Supernew Supergraphics.
