New Book ‘Faile Prints + Originals 1999 – 2009’ Coming Soon
cover for illustration purposes only
I know Faile have been working on this book long and hard for a few months now so it’s great to see some news on the publishers website of a book that is sure to be on most fans shopping list, it’s certainly on mine. Gestalten, who also brought us Beyond the Street, show the book as being available in September of this year so fans will have to be a little patient.
Faile have been very busy over the last few months with not only preparing this book but also their show Fluxx Deluxx together with Bäst at Lazarides in London & then New York. We’ve also seen some really nice print releases in this time.
Whilst the books won’t be ready for release until September you can pre-order your copy to ensure you receive it as early as possible. The published prices will be € 44,00 / $ 69,00 / £ 40,00 but it is available with a discount on pre-order.

From the Publisher
The Brooklyn-based artists Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller began their prolific collaboration as Faile in 1999 by creating street art in New York City. Today, Faile have established themselves along with Banksy and Shepard Fairey as the leading figures in the genre of urban art. Their work is exhibited in museums and has been sold successfully by renowned galleries such as Gagosian and Lazarides. Faile still work on the streets of cities throughout the world and are held in high esteem by their artist peers.
Faile: Prints + Originals 1999–2009 is the first comprehensive collection of Faile’s wide range of prints, graphic design, and paintings. Their work can be seen as a modern interpretation of classic American collage and graphic printmaking that skillfully combines visual cues from a street aesthetic, pop culture, comics, and advertising.
