La MJC is gearing up to unleash this year’s edition of All Gone, an ode to bling culture and hip-hop jewelry, namely that of the ’90s era. The art direction is in turn a nod to classic Southern hip-hop artwork from that decade, ranging from Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx EP, to Master P’s No Limit records imagery, Eric B and Rakim, LL Cool J, Scarface and Big Daddy Kane, Kurtis Blow, Biggie, JAY-Z, and Birdman.
In addition to the range of musicians, the 2017 cover also references the work of NYC-based contemporary artist Luis Gispert. The hand-drawn artwork then comes from French illustrator Yoann Houlbert, with the finished product being printed on a silver-based paper as to highlight the reflections of the chains and diamonds.
This year not only welcomes two All Gone covers, but for the first time ever, three. The book is set to launch January 20, but you can go ahead and pre-order your copy today.
In other design news, Virgil Abloh and OFF-WHITE have just released an exclusive set of markers.
