The Outsiders

More and more of us are turning to the great outdoors when seeking peace, balance, and a touch of adventure to offset our daily grind—whether hiking through the mountains, paddling on a silent lake, or simply spending a night in a tent far away from civilization. The Outsiders showcases the outlook and passions of the new creative scene that has emerged and draws inspiration from this development along with its original products, brands, and ideas. 

Around the World

Looking through an atlas has always been a fascinating way to explore the world. Around the World is a contemporary evolution of an atlas tailored to our information age that takes its readers around the globe in 272 pages.

In this book, compelling information graphics illustrate how natural and man-made phenomena impact our lives. They take us on an entertaining and informative journey that gives us a deeper, more intuitive understanding not only of our planet’s geography, but also of the key personal and global developments of the twenty-first century.

The Ride

In the motorcycle scene of 1960s Britain, it was frowned upon to drive a motorcycle as it was produced in a factory. Following in this historical tradition, The Ride focuses on those who are creating customized motorcycles that come as close to one’s own vision of how pure riding should be as possible. For example, the creative young people who are buying old, wrecked bikes on eBay, removing everything but the motor and frame, and then rebuilding them in ways that are as radical and subversively creative as they are knowledgeable and respectful of tradition.

Forever

Tattoos, which were once an exclusively underground phenomenon, now have mass appeal. This evolution from sub-culture to mainstream has brought fresh ideas, tensions, and shifts with it, and traditionalists and innovators have staked out very different positions. Over the last few years, new influences from the realms of art, fashion, traditional tattoo art, and visual culture have given rise to a dynamic tattoo scene—a new underground. This cutting-edge tattoo culture is as innovative, diverse, inspiring, and controversial as the motifs it creates. 

Surf Odyssey

Multitalented graphic artist, Andrew Groves, is also a passionate surfer and deeply involved in the surfing scene. The designer has a special focus on surfing and outdoor lifestyles; his illustrations have graced the pages of publications like the New York Times, Huck Magazine, the New Yorker, GQ, Wired, and the Guardian. In 2011, he founded Miscellaneous Adventures, a project for which he hand-carves practical objects from wood. 

Berlin Wonderland

Als 1989 die Mauer fällt, entdecken Künstler, Punks, Anarchos, Hausbesetzer, Visionäre und Spinner das Niemandsland, die nun nahezu gesetzlose Zone inmitten Berlins. Es entstanden Clubs, Bars, Technopartys, Galerien, Aufstände, Ausstellungen – das Tacheles und der Schokoladen. All dies wurde zum Magnet für junge Leute aus der ganzen Welt. Zwischen bröckelnden Altbaufassaden wurden Freiräume gelebt, entwickelte sich ungezügelte Kreativität und ein neues Lebensgefühl.
