Christophe's work is extremely sought after, and it has now gained interest from clients outside the metal scene. By far one of the most prolific but also the furthest reaching artist with now around 10,000 logos completed to date. Art Deco and Art Nouveau are the real sources of inspiration, exploring the abyss of imagination in crafting a logo and at the same time, aesthetically pleasant, attractive and functional. 'Archaic Modernism' takes a journey into the artist visual universe and philosophy, accompanied by the works of Stanislav Krawczyk.

Lord of the Logos

Release:
January 2010 via Gestalten
About:
This book is a collection of work by Christophe Szpajdel, an artist whose fans in the underground black metal community worship him as the Lord of the Logos. It includes hundreds of powerful logos, each of which captures the force of this musical genre anew. Through his surprising use of aesthetic influences such as art deco and nature, Szpajdel has brought a new dynamic into the gothic visuality of heavy metal. This publication, which is done in the style of a black prayerbook, shows not only how he has succeeded in leaving his own visual mark on this music, but how he has also expanded the canon of forms it uses.
