No More Rulers Reproduced Jean-Michel Basquiat's "The Notebooks"As part of a new collaborative capsule that will be complemented by merch and a live AMA session.
Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Notebooks is published by No More Rulers and Princeton University Press and features a collection of writings and sketches from seven different notebooks that the prolific artist journaled in from 1980 to 1987.
Edited by the renowned publisher, Larry Warsh, the publication was first released in 2015 to coincide with major exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. For the latest re-release, the meticulous reproduction is complemented by a clothing capsule that features a selection of Basquiat’s work on three different t-shirts.
Additionally, No More Rulers will host a series of Live AMA sessions via their Instagram account from October 19 to 21. The list of guests in the panel includes Kidsuper, Eric Haze, Futura, Sarah Andelman, and more. 10 comments with question submissions will be selected at random to receive a copy of The Notebooks, along with a full set of the merch.
Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Notebooks is available to purchase for $29.95 USD via Princeton University Press. The clothing will release at a later date.
