Vox by Matteo De Longis

Italian illustrator and designer Matteo De Longis  has taken art books to a new level. By packaging his edgy gallery of modern rock & roll idols into the size of a 12" vinyl album, it fits perfectly between your Joan Jet and Joy Division records. (Yes you can like both those at the same time thank you very much).

This sexy look book is inspired by glam rock both modern and old. Metteo paints vivid and provocative images using real life models for inspiration. Some of those models aren't even human, they're cars, planes and of course, musical equipment calling from all ends of the electric spectrum. If you're confused where to house this beautiful book, then you best be like this comic book loving vinyl addict and house your eye art with your ear art. This book will not be out of place even if you suffer from my kind of categorizing OCD.

A truly stunning masterpiece, Matteo's work is made available by Magnetic Press. You can currently purchase the book online through the Magnetic Press Webstore however you will see it in a comic shop near you tomorrow! I hope to see a lot in the future from this inspired Italian illustrator.
