(Publishers review) 'Following the sad death of Vaughan Oliver on 29th December 2019, we received a surge in orders for our book, Vaughan Oliver: Archive, which sold out quickly. Due to the many requests we have received, and as a way of honouring Vaughan’s life and work, we have decided to reprint a limited number of copies of the book.
The book is a celebration of the Vaughan Oliver Archive, a treasure house of graphic delights housed at UCA Epsom. Oliver is the designer who kept the stuff other designers threw away: proofs, running sheets, paper labels for vinyl records, original artwork for classic album covers, videotapes, books and the weird ephemera that was the source of inspiration for many of his most famous works.
Vaughan Oliver: Archive (‘Materials and fragments’) is arranged around a set of themes — colour, hybrid forms, typography, the body, mystery, etc. It also features a selection of his exquisitely designed press ads, most of them unseen since the day they were published in the music press.'
