Distributed for Front Forty Press
The first in a series of accessible and affordable art books from Front Forty Press, Front Forty Profiles No. 1 features the designs/illustrations of artist Mark McGinnis—whose work has appeared in solo exhibitions in both Chicago and Los Angeles and has been featured in the New York Times and Business Week. McGinnis uses icons, drawing, and printmaking processes to captivate and to communicate to his audience, his poignant, simplified images often skewing preconceptions of popular issues in political and social spheres while instigating reflection on a given topic. Accompanying McGinnis’s work is an interview with the artist conducted by art writer and critic Victor Cassidy and an essay on McGinnis’s technique and inspiration by Carlo Vinti. Also included with the first volume of the Profiles series is a limited edition icon sticker by the artist.
