Recommends: Odd Waves

Recommends: Odd Waves

Here's a nice limited edition conceived by Sydney-based graphic designer Steele Bonus. 'Odd Waves' is a new 32-page risograph printed book, documenting an international movement of New Wave outsiders circa 1979-1985.

Through fuzzy photographic portraits lifted from obscure record covers that were only admired in tiny editions, a loose narrative is told, contrasting pop wannabes and art school punks. The corresponding mix CD is total madness too - Eastern European disco, narcotic Neue Deutsche Welle and naive DIY.

Only 300 copies exist and are available at Colette.
