Book Four of Solipsistic Pop is the largest and most ambitious volume yet – with 80 pages, 30 artists, a larger print-run of 1,000, and extensive interactive material that makes full use of the joy of the printed artefact.
The theme for Book Four is Maps and each contributor has created a comic inspired by the visual vocabulary of cartography, circuit diagrams and flowcharts.
A large folder designed by John Miers houses the book and additional elements - including three postcards that have been specially printed to encourage the reader to travel with their comics. A local-area bingo checklist by Oliver East, a glow-in-the-dark comic by Takayo Akiyama, and a plantable seeded comic by Jenny Robins.
A wraparound book cover by Stephen Collins is protected by a large A2 poster/dustjacket designed by Katie Green.
