    Bookshelf: Sergio Membrillas

Bookshelf: Short but definitely sweet! Sergio Membrillas' ace bookshelf

Posted by Liv Siddall,

A brief but brilliant selection here from the fabulous illustrator Sergio Membrillas. A favourite in the It’s Nice That HQ for his constant updates, Sergio’s editorial illustrations just seem to keep flowing out of his head! Naturally, his selection includes some of the nicest illustration books around. Dig in!

Blexbolex: Seasons

It’s one of these books you have to close to realise the beauty of the images you are seeing. The talent to represent concepts, words and his magic sensibility are amazing. It’s like a book from the past, and it’s one of my favourites!

The Small Stakes: Music Posters

I think his work is changing some way the music imagery and recovering the tradition of the past of taking care of bands’ image. Beautiful images linked to concepts that describe perfectly the bands he is doing the posters for. Precise and smart. This book is a compendium of his latest work, perfect for music/illustration/design fans.

The Sweetly Diabolic Art of Jim Flora.

One of the masters, one of the big ones. A book full of brilliant works, Just great!

Bjorn Rune Lie: The Wolf’s Whistle

Another book that seems brought from the past. Great edition by the always careful Nobrow publishing house. I can imagine a kid from the 1920s reading it and enjoying a lot like I did when i bought it. A gemstone in my bookshelf!

The Whimsical Work of David Weidman

Great compilation of David Weidman’s silkscreen works. This book was a present from my sister and I remember spending the whole evening trapped into this book. Another master, another great one.
