Ricky's sculptures and installations have been exhibited throughout the world, including solo shows at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; MOMA PS1; and the Australian Pavilion of the 2005 Venice Biennale.  We are big fans of his work and were particularly taken with his cast-bronze sculptures of everyday objects in last year's Whitney Biennial.

Introducing Issue 25 - Brian Roettinger

 
ISSUE 25 - BRIAN ROETTINGER
Available Now
 
SHOP NOW
 
We are pleased to announce that issue 25 by Brian Roettinger is now available to the public. 

Los Angeles–based artist and two-time Grammy-nominated graphic designer Brian Roettinger is celebrated for the graphic design and art direction he has created for artists, architects and musicians such as No Age, Liars, Beach House and Jay-Z.  Issue 25 is a massive catalogue raisonné that collects, documents and indexes the majority of Roettinger’s design work produced to date.

Video still from the short film: Reproductions
The works, which are reproduced in black and white from photocopies, are not presented chronologically, nor is it clear, upon first inspection, which project is which: an early version is shown, sometimes just a sketch, and in some cases, the final printer proofs. Unlike a traditional monograph, Roettinger's reimagined interpretation is a testament to the process itself, and underscores the poles of his approach, which is both visibly chaotic and meticulously organized.

The issue is available online at THE THING Quarterly and in bookstores where THE THING is carried throughout the world.

+ Introduction by Aaron Rose

"THE GREATEST COFFEE TABLE BOOK EVER"
-the Huff Post
 
SHOP NOW

Happy New Year!  We are rolling into 2015 with plenty of good stuff, but we have to take a quick look back at 2014, wherein both the Huff Post and Canada's National Post singled out THE THING THE BOOK for their "best of" list for 2014.

If you don't have a copy for your coffee table, now is the time.  And If you don't have a coffee table on which to place it, we recommend using the book as a small coffee table. 

All Copies purchased from THE THING are signed by the editors
(the same cannot be said for all purchases from Amazon... )
