Silhouettes From Popular Culture

We got the chance to browse a copy of this amazing book, just released by Titan. Great stuff, indeed!

For his eagerly awaited first book, acclaimed artist Olly Moss has had the simple but brilliant idea of putting his own twist on the Victorian art of silhouette portraits. While this lovingly crafted volume might look as if it’s from the 1890s, its pages contain today’s favourite cult characters from movies, TV, comics and videogames. Can you recognise them all?

Silhouettes From Popular Culture collects Olly Moss’s acclaimed ‘Paper Cuts’ series exhibited at the sold-out solo show at LA’s famous pop-culture Gallery 1988. The book has a foreword written by Duncan Jones (director of Source Code and Moon).
