Very special limited edition book on Massimo Osti: Ideas. Never opened brand new collectors piece. Produced in only 150 numbered pieces. The Ideas from Massimo Osti Limited Edition presents a hardback copy of the book hand bound an original Osti fabric (each copy is unique), as well as 150 loose leaf pages of images, almost entirely previously unseen, all housed in a handsome embossed card box. Included in the Ideas from Massimo Osti Limited Edition is a unique version of the trade edition of the book, hand wrapped in Bologna in an original Osti fabric taken from. Rolls conserved in the Massimo Osti Archive. These fabrics are predominantly canvas materials with Stone Island, Boneville and C. Company screenprint tests but also, mixed in randomly in smaller numbers, a few extremely rare materials from Osti’s most iconic designs (Ice Jacket Camouflage, Thermojoint, first season blue Reflective). The book is covered in a screenprinted protective PVC dust jacket. An intimate documentary, in the form of 150 images printed on recycled natural offset paper, of a day (or a year, or a month, or a decade) in the life of Massimo Osti’s studio, of the designer’s daily creative process, of the accumulation of inspirations, ideas, designs, ephemera. These almost entirely previously unseen images have all been culled from papers left in the Studio after Osti’s passing, they include photos of the man at work, of his work areas, of his sketches, designs, advertising campaign mock-ups, photocopies of details of vintage garments used as insipiration, and so on. They are presented without explanatory texts other than a small caption on their rearside, unbound, with only a suggested initial order which lightly alludes to the daily rhythms within the Studio over. Both the specially-wrapped copy of the book and the additional 150 loose-leaf pages are housed in a purpose built natural card box simply decorated with the embossed book title on the front.
