Behold The Cover Of Titan Books' Forthcoming Olly Moss Book SILHOUETTES FROM POPULAR CULTURE!!
Later this year, the awesome folks over at Titan Books will bring us a collection of art from the inimitable Olly Moss. If you're not familiar with his name, chances are you've come across his work at one point or another - samples of which can be seen at his official website (HERE).
Titan sent along a preview of the publication's cover. More specifically, this is a prototype - the final version will be bound in full cloth, featuring gold foiling and a paper label inset of the silhouette on the cover.
The cover appears below this release from Titan, which offers a bit more detail about the title.
Titan Books to publish the first book collecting striking and playful art from influential pop culture artist
Born in the UK in 1987, Olly Moss has quickly become “one of the most in demand and influential pop culture artists in the world today” (Slashfilm). Titan Books are delighted to announce the acquisition of worldwide rights to publish a lavish hardback collection of Moss’s sought-after series depicting popular characters from films, television and video games in beautifully crafted Victorian-style silhouette portraits.
Olly Moss’s clients have included Nike, Apple, Lucasfilm, Sony Entertainment, Paramount, The New York Times and Time Magazine. His projects vary from posters for classic and contemporary films (including Star Wars and, most recently, The Avengers), to art for bestselling games such as Resistance 3, and designs for Levi’s and Urban Outfitters.
Silhouettes From Popular Culture collects Moss’s acclaimed ‘Paper Cuts’ series exhibited at the sold-out solo show at LA’s famous pop-culture Gallery 1988. The book will have a foreword written by Duncan Jones (director of Source Code and Moon) and will be published in a gorgeous gift volume in October.
Praise for Olly Moss
“His minimalist musings on movie and pop-culture themes are always things of beauty.” Empire
“His stuff sells out immediately, and is just plain cool.” Ain’t It Cool News
“Bold graphics, serious inspiration and a wry sense of humor.” New York Times
“When people think of a “pop idol” they generally think of someone who is young, talented, had a quick rise to fame and the kind of devoted loyal fan base who’d wait 24 hours on the street to see them. By those standards, and many more, U.K. based artist Olly Moss is now a pop idol.” Slashfilm

Olly was easy to pick out in the crowded Alamo lobby when he was here with makeup giant Rick Baker for a screening of "AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON." He had created the poster for the event for Mondo. Everyone was crowded around Baker (easily recognizable), or in line to get his signature on the poster. Olly's was already on each poster given to the film attendees. Standing to the side talking to just a couple of Alamo staffers I spotted a young man very British in grooming & dress. I approached... "Are you the poster artist?" He responded in the affirmative. "I've got this sketch book I've had artists draw in since 1974, its got Frank Kozik, Shepard Faire, Robert Crumb, Gilbert Shelton... Would you do me something in it?" Next thing I know, I've got a multi colored pin & ink "Boba Fett" in my book... NICE GUY !!! Make that, A GREAT GUY !!!

It's framed and hanging on my wall. Cost me a pretty penny. But it was worth every one.

Met him on several occasions. Very down to earth guy and always willing to chat it up about movies, video games, etc. I was fortunate enough (fortunate being waiting in line for 22 hours) to procure the Harrison Ford 3 piece at the Paper Cuts Show. Still the crown jewels of my art collection.
