18 Dez Figures of Speech
“Figures of Speech” examines Virgil Abloh’s creative work over the last twenty years. The book contains well-known, but also over 1,800 previously unknown images from Virgil’s personal files and gives us insights into his creations in the fields of fashion, furniture, graphics, architecture and his collaboration with other creative people. In extensive essays, Abloh’s work is examined through the lens of the African diaspora and the way he works in both high and subculture.
And if that’s not enough for you, there is also a special edition. In typical Abloh sampling style, it’s the book featured on the cover of this book. It comes with a cloth slipcase, “Personal Copy” silkscreened on the book’s fore edge, a measuring tape ribbon marker, and a flexi disc that includes a recording of Virgil Abloh discussing his inspirations, garnished with a Juergen Teller photo.
