Portrait of an Artist on Fire

About three weeks back I got distracted (as I'm wont to do) while talking about the anniversary of Harmony Korine's film Spring Breakers, specifically by its poster -- it was designed by one of my absolute favorite working movie poster artists, Akiko Stehrnberger, and therein I yammered a bit about her work and how friggin' excellent I find it to be. Anyway one of my holy grails has been the hardcover book about her work that was released in 2020 and immediately went out of print -- there isn't a week that rolls by where I don't search eBay for it. But search no more! Because a second-edition is getting issued this fall and you can pre-order it right here. Indeed if you order it right now it's on sale for 40 bucks instead of 50! This second-edition has a new cover (seen above) and includes some of Akiko's newer work, some of which you can see in the Instagram post below. Score!

The 'Decision to Leave' poster is amazing.
