From the publisher:
This is the first, long-awaited gathering of the work of Barcelona illustrator Jordi Labanda, a frequent contributor to magazines such as Wallpaper, Visionaire, Spruce, Vogue USA, and Vogue Japan, and the creator of innovative advertising campaigns in the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany, and Spain. Labanda portrays his figures in a sophisticated world, expressing his original at times ironic, at times photographic vision of social mores, fashion, art, architecture, and human relationships. His illustrations of contemporary "types" and "super-hip" lifestyles have spawned a legion of imitators. His elegant line is inspired by the classic concepts of advertising, with an unmistakably contemporary note.
