100 gggBooks / 100 Graphic Designers The 183rd Exhibition
November 09, 2011 - December 21, 2011
In commemoration of ggg’s 25th anniversary, and also to celebrate the publication of the 100th volume in the gggBooks series, for its November exhibition the ddd gallery will mount “100 gggBooks / 100 Graphic Designers.”
Publication of the gggBooks series was launched in 1992 as a complement to the gallery’s regular exhibition activities. The series features a compact pocket size that enables easy access to the alluring appeal of graphic design in its myriad variations.
The commemorative exhibition will bring together 100 major works – one each – by the 100 designers (65 Japanese + 35 overseas) featured in the first 100 volumes of gggBooks. Besides highlighting each designer’s unique individuality, the works on show will collectively provide visitors a remarkable kaleidoscope of graphic design from around the world. Also on display will be gggBooks’ very first e-book, the next generation in the publishing world.
A special edition of gggBooks, on the 100 featured graphic designers, will be published in conjunction with the exhibition.
