Trunk vs Fuel
A NIGHT OF WEIRD BOOKS, LIVE SCREEN-PRINTING, INTERESTING MUSIC & OTHER THINGS.
To celebrate the release of "Own Label", Jonny Trunk and graphic partnership Fuel will be in store on Tuesday 22nd November. This partnership has produced some interesting books over the years, from the first ever study of Music Library LP art to rubber fetish wear and now an overview of Sainsbury's Own Label packaging designs from the 60s to the 70s.
Fuel are also well known for their Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedias, and Jonny Trunk runs Trunk Records, possibly the UK's most peculiar record label.
On the night Fuel Publishing books will be available, Jonny will be Djing, signing books and possibly fending off amorous advances from both men and women alike. They have also organised a screen printer for the evening and will be producing and releasing a one off T shirt / poster as an exclusive to Rough Trade for one night only. There will also be special pre-release copies of the next Trunk album available. We can barely contain ourselves!
Check out the nice little video containing packaging seen in the book...
