Vaughan Oliver: Archive
'Vaughan Oliver: Archive' is in fact two books. The first ('Materials and fragments') is arranged around a set of themes – colour, typography, the body, mystery, etc. It also features a selection of his exquisitely designed press ads – most of them unseen since the day they were published in the music press.
The second book ('Remnants and desires') features a selection of the PMTs (Photo-Mechanical Transfer prints) that Oliver used as the basis for many of his most famous designs. Some can be recognised as forming parts of famous album covers – others (like his test lettering for an aborted Led Zeppelin project) have never been seen outside of the v23 studio.
