Thomas Schostok {ths} releases his new book: Mr. Trash

To be honest I’ve never heard of Thomas Schostok, aka {ths}, until I received a mail today informing me of the release of his new book entitled “Mr. Trash”. I am really happy I got notified, because what I was about to see (and show you now) blew me away. Instead of trying to come up with some copy-paste, slightly modified text, I will simply give you the official press release:

ESSEN, GERMANY – September 22, 2008 – {ths} today announced ‘Mr. Trash’ the new book about the extravagant work of Thomas Schostok {ths}. Raw, dirty, irreverent and uncensored, Mr. Trash spares no cliche, no absurdity in bringing you what the book’s publisher called “world’s strangest ejaculation of graphic design”. Not bound to the field of graphic design, the book represents the last 10 years of Schostok’s work, blurring art and graphic design. Design, typography, paintings, collage, Gluebooks – all his work in one big monograph.

Mr. Trash is an independent book, chained to any publisher and without the censorship of mainstream producer.

{ths} is Thomas Schostok. Known for the creation of the BEAST Magazine in 2001, one of the first design/art/mixed-media magazine delivered as PDF. He is an artist and works with graphic design, collage, typography, drawing and painting. His work, reflected by mass cultural boredom, psychological warfare and professional wrestling; his artworks reference both graphic arts and ultimate trash. He lives and works in Germany.
