Fingerprint No. 2 — the long-awaited follow-up to our original Fingerprint book, is now available here on Supermarket!

Following in the tradition of the best-selling first edition, Fingerprint No. 2 showcases more than a hundred different projects from around the world that all have a common thread — beautiful, honest and bound to contain a few imperfections. Just the way we like it.

From the moment you hold this book in your hand, you will appreciate the texture and feel that a computer screen cannot provide. Made of ultra-thick chipboard, screenprinted and debossed, complete with foil-stamped library cloth on the spine, the cover perfectly represents the great work that is contained inside.

You’ll see work from places far and near — San Francisco, Kansas City, Singapore, Mexico City, Toronto, Bristol, Osaka, New York, Lithuania, Austin, Helsinki, and more. Fingerprint is truly a global community.

This time around, we’ve put more emphasis on how designers are actually integrating handmade elements with computer work, organized into chapters like Scissors & Tape; Wood, Iron & Fabric; Stencil, Copier & Sponge; Pen, Pencil & Brush; and Ink & Press.

And continuing the special feature started in the first book, Fingerprint No. 2 includes exclusive and visual essays by Shanan Galligan, Robynne Raye, Christian Helms, and Stefan Bucher. Former AIGA National President Debbie Millman provides an eloquent foreword, and Print magazine contributor and design critic Colin Berry provides an insightful commentary thread through the entire book.
