Sonnenzimmer is the Chicago-based art and print studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi. This proposed project, Warp and Weft: Poster Construction by Sonnenzimmer, is a book exploring the compositional approach, historical influence, and individual story behind 30 of our favorite screen printed posters. Pairing each of the 30 prints chosen for the book with focused writing, we’ll have the opportunity to give insight into our collaborative working process, as well as our thoughts on contemporary visual culture. In addition, each featured poster will be accompanied by a single-color wire frame breakdown of the composition. This break down will help in communicating the role of composition in our work and will function as a talking piece in our text.
