Writer, designer and curator Byron Hawes — who previously released Drop in 2018 — has launched a new book examining the history of Supreme‘s artist-designed skateboards. Titled Art on Deck, the book focuses on the New York label’s work with contemporary artists from 1998 until 2018, spanning KAWS, Damien Hirst, Takashi Murakami and Jeff Koons.
Alongside images of some of the most-recognizable boards, the book also features Supreme’s rarest decks including the “LV” cease-and-desist series and the “Japan-only Jesus.” Additionally, creatives including LA-based photographer @baariksgallery and Johanesburg-based collective I See A Different You have captured the boards in action, while the book also features discussion and interviews with some of the artists in question.
As well as featuring in Art on Deck, Supreme skate decks are also partially the subject of a new auction at Christie’s, which includes a number of collaborative artist boards as well as other accessories from the New York brand.
Take a look at Art on Deck in the gallery above, and head over to Amazon to get your hands on the comprehensive book.
