The 412 page monograph on influential Italian designer Massimo Osti is now available in both a standard and a limited edition trade version. The former is affordable and the latter a work of genius even Massimo would have been proud of: 150 numbered pieces each hand bound in original Osti fabric, and presented in an embossed card box with 150 loose-leaf images of the Osti studio and the daily processes that took place there. This book is a near-essential purchase that took 4 years to make and was written and edited by Osti's wife Daniela Facchinato.

The SS12 issue of Arena Homme Plus features one of my favourite editorials in recent memory: a look back through the archives of Massimo Osti, the famed italian designer whose work for CP Company, Stone Island, Left Hand and Massimo Osti Production helped define a culture, era and movement. The editorial is shot by photographer Mel Bles and styled by Max Pearmain, while a small but excellent article by Lodovico Pignatti-Morano examining Osti's influence and legacy immediately follows it. A monograph on the designers work, which features an essay by Franco "Bifo" Beradi, is due to be published later this year.
