THRASHER 'Mail Drop - 38 Years of Envelope Art' - Book
Regular priceSale price
Sometimes Treasure is hidden in plain sight. Thrasher’s four-decade accumulation of envelope art has been spread out so evenly for so long that the magnitude of this project was not apparent right away. Of course, everyone involved knew there were nuggets of hand-crafted gold scattered through Mail Drop over the years. However, only when this book was being compiled did the staggering bounty of artistic talent, genius and madness become undeniable. There was A LOT of art to choose from. So, we approached it like any snobby curator would do—select the best, edit out the rest. And then, as we gazed at the hundreds of misfit drawings left behind, we said, "Nah, fuck that. Let's put them ALL in." Each envelope sent to the mag is a gift and the weird ones are sometimes the best ones.
