From Andy Warhol to the sassy designers of today, screen-printing is a medium with undeniable panache. Prized for its accessibility and bold, saturated colors, screen-printing is cheap, versatile, and a little dirty. Not to mention fast. Author Mike Perry (Hand Job, Over and Over) screened his first shirt in college and wore it later that night. So listen up, burgeoning artistes: it can't always be bad to wear your heart on your sleeve.

Pulled stretches screen-printing in all directions, leaving no element untouched. This book is a survey and a how-to, a collection of prints and an idea bank. It brings together more than forty talented screen printers, including Aesthetic Apparatus, Deanne Cheuk, Steven Harrington, Maya Hayuk, Cody Hudson, Jeremyville, Andy Mueller, Rinzen, and Andy Smith, among many others. Pulled is for the creative person who wants to leave his mark on cotton, or anything else.


Mike Perry works in Brooklyn, New York, making books, magazines, newspapers, clothing, drawings, paintings, illustrations, and teaching whenever possible. He is the author of the books, Hand Job and Over and Over, both published by Princeton Architectural Press. He is currently working on two new books. In 2007 he started a magazine called Untitled, which explores his current interests. He has worked with clients such as Apple, the New York Times Magazine, Dwell magazine, Target, Urban Outfitters, eMusic, and Nike. In 2004 Step magazine included him in their annual "30 Under 30" roundup; in 2007 Computer Arts Projects magazine described him as a groundbreaking illustrator; and in 2008 he received Print magazine's New Visual Artist award and was one of the Art Directors Club Young Guns 6. Doodling away night and day, Perry creates new typefaces and sundry graphics that inevitably find their way into his work, exercising the great belief that generating piles is the sincerest form of creative process. His work has been seen around the world from London, Tokyo, Singapore, Los Angles, Minneapolis, and New York City.
