Judy Chicago: New Views

We just received our advance copy of “Judy Chicago: New Views”— her first major monograph in nearly twenty years. We’re so pleased with how it turned out, and grateful we were asked to design this important examination of Chicago’s work. Well done Helen McNiell!

2019 Flag Stamp Released by the USPS

Sometimes the story behind a stamp’s creation never gets told. Not this time. Three years ago, Antonio traveled to Chicago for a milestone birthday celebration for his first design instructor, mentor, and friend Philip Burton. During the visit, on a walk down the famous Chicago Pier, Antonio took flag photos, thinking perhaps one might be suitable for a stamp. Today, the 2019 US Flag Stamp has been issued and features one of those photos. Every time mail goes out from Studio A now, it’s a happy reminder of that special visit.
