Tat* is a bit of a graphic designer’s curse. Walk into any design studio and you’ll see bits and pieces of graphic ephemera pinned to the walls or taped to a computer screen. Even the purist will have a secret cache hidden away somewhere. Designer Andy Altmann has been collecting tat for more than30 years. He finds inspiration in the ordinary, and magic in the mundane. Finally he has decided to share his collection with the world. Conceived and edited by Andy, this is the apotheosis of tat. A visual treasure trove, full of surprises, it should find a place on every graphic designer’s desk.
