AT WAR WITH WAR: ILLUSTRATING 5,000 YEARS OF CONFLICT



Written by Fin Murphy

Seymour Chwast is an immensely important figure in design; he co-founded Push Pin Studios, worked with a host of publications, advertising agencies and brands and his work has been exhibited worldwide. Hell, he even has honourary PHDs, not the sort of poxy degrees that former polys give Big Brother contestants for lulz. 

Presently, Chwast is working on At War With War, a 70-page original book of illustrations charting conflict from 3300 BCE to the present day. So all the big names will be in there plus some of the more obscure skirmishes, I'd imagine. Check out the Kickstarter here to bring the project to completion and here are some pages from it:

 

Here's a video delving into the making of the book:
