The Art of Cardboard: Big Ideas for Creativity, Collaboration, Storytelling, and Reuse Paperback
by Lori Zimmer (Author)
Breathe new life into that old cardboard box! Though paper and cardboard seem common and humble materials, discover the totally unexpected, beautiful and intricate art that can be created using the repurposed and up cycled resource.
The Art of Cardboard showcases the grand and imaginative scale of cardboard art and design. Inside, you'll find jaw-dropping cardboard creations from around the world! You'll discover the process of each art form, as well as tricks of the trade, from small clever projects to huge art installations.
Much more than a book about "neat" cardboard designs, Lori Zimmer guides you through amazing large-scale art production, immersive environments, working from intuition, collaboration, the artist's role in society, alternative creative economies, contemporary mythology, storytelling and more.
With such a readily available material, what will you create?
Since their debut album in 2001, the Gorillaz project of Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett has been one of the most unique and art-driven music groups to ever form. In celebration of their new album, Humanz, Juxtapoz sat down with comic book artist and Gorillaz co-creator Hewlett for the July 2017 cover story, discussing the evolution of the characters, making visuals that connect to music, and how Gorillaz reflects the world we live in today.

Knowing how many significant events occurred in and around 1967, especially in San Francisco, there is something so resonant about San Francisco’s de Young Museum, residing directly in the middle of Golden Gate Park, the epicenter of the Summer of Love, to now be hosting the exhibition, The Summer of Love Experience: Art, Fashion, and Rock & Roll, through August 20, 2017. It really couldn’t be any other place. In honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, Juxtapoz is pleased to present a special cover story on the events of 1967, with a cover image from the infamous Stanley Mouse and Alton Kelley psychedelic poster for the Grateful Dead.

Sometimes a visual just makes your eyes go popping out of your noggin. And sometimes, a cover image just literally demonstrates how your eyes can go popping out of your noggin. And that is the May 2017 cover image by NYC-based Jamian Juliano-Villani. Jamian makes wonderfully surreal and other-worldly cartoon-esque paintings. Some are crude depictions of sex, some that are just plain hilarious, and others are just imaginative universes. We are hooked.
