I have had the great pleasure in meeting Eddie Zammit, who runs the only T-shirt journal in existence — known as T-world. Their new eddition travels to the Empire State. Milton Glaser’s tourist campaign logo (I Love NY) turned souvenir t shirt graphic sums up the feelings T-world has for the most ambitious city of them all.
The city has been responsible for the birth of hip-hop, the rise of graffiti as an art form, and famous artists like Andy Warhol. In fact, it was Warhol himself who inspired the idea that a single, ordinary product like a simple t shirt (he used a Campbell’s Soup can) could generate the topic of art and conversation. 200 pages. Hardcover edition. Coming soon.
