Draping is a technique that involves working with fabric directly on the mannequin. This allows the designer to start out from an idea that can change as the design of the piece progresses. In this process, creative freedom plays a more important and less rigid role than patterns and drawings on paper do. This publication is a practical step by step guide for students and fashion professionals who want to delve deeper into this technique used by big industry names such as Issey Miyake, Margela, Thierry Mugler, Iris van Herpen and many others. Focusing on a range of subjects, from the required tools and different examples of designs to the steps to be followed in creating jackets, skirts and dresses as well as more specific details, this book offers everything that readers need to learn the principles of draping step by step and have a solid basis for making their own creations without limiting their creativity.

This richly illustrated new book by Victor Escandell is devoted exclusively to the infinite creative possibilities of drawing and painting in black and white. Traditional and current materials, techniques and applications (Indian ink, pencil, pen, bamboo, water-soluble graphite, different types of felt-tip pens for various supports, grattage) are described clearly so that readers can experiment with what they have learned and develop their creativity with a range of materials. Each chapter deals with a specific technique and contains useful information such as methods used, types of material and illustrated examples, including interesting anecdotes about the origin of the technique, tricks of the trade and references to other classic and contemporary authors. Everything is illustrated with photographs of the final result and images of the process to make sure readers don’t get lost along the way. Different black-and-white mixed techniques are also presented in a specific chapter while the last chapter examines applications beyond paper (textiles, glass, vinyl). Víctor Escandell is also comfortable working with gouache, ink, charcoal, pen and pencil. In his hands, these tools take on a new dimension while everyday products such as salt, bleach and even a hair dryer become essential companions on this adventure. With this book, the apparently simple and limited combination of black and white acquires a new level of expressiveness and drama. It contains QR codes that link to short videos explaining the featured technique.

This original work introduces readers to the drawing and painting techniques of the hyperrealist movement, a style applied to painting whose techniques aspire to photographic exactitude in drawing. From the first action before viewing the piece – the search for information and reference images – to different drawing and sculpture techniques, the book offers a step-by-step explanation of the creative process and shows readers how to illustrate in black and white and with colored pencils, how to work with watercolors and oil, how to create a trompe l’oeil and how to create a realistic looking 3D model. Readers will find all the techniques and suggestions they need to make their own hyperrealist creations, all explained in a pleasant and fun way. It is an original and creative way to introduce different drawing techniques that will awaken the artist inside of us all and whose results will strike most readers as surprising given the degree of realism achieved, as if they were photographs. The book includes references to contemporary artists who have used each of the techniques described, curiosities in the world of art and other tricks of the trade.

In today’s highly digital environment, the pleasure of the touch, smell and weight of paper as we hold it in our hands is taking on new value. In the graphic design sector, technology is taking giant steps forward, providing designers with increasingly sophisticated tools for producing high-impact designs. In this context, print publications are becoming exclusive objects, and this means that they need designs, textures and finishes that make them especially desirable. In the future, the publications that stand the test of time will be those which we wish to preserve because they feature the beauty of handmade objects. Page Design pays tribute to the tradition of print editorial design by focusing on its outstanding contemporary value. This volume offers a panorama of contemporary trends and styles through a selection of one hundred projects of different sizes, from flyers and magazines to posters, catalogues and books. The projects featured are a statement of aesthetic and conceptual principles that take on a special power going beyond the purely visual when placed in readers’ hands. Containing case studies and tips and tricks, this book is full of ideas on page layout, interaction between sections and the optimum way to convey a message. It is a perfect reference work for designers that will rekindle readers’ love of books as objects with an enduring value.
