Great, and pretty huge book documenting the visual work of Esprit from 1984-1986. Part Benetton, part Memphis, with simple primary colours, graphic shapes, polka dot shoes, amazing socks and this total brand sort of approach that was pretty pioneering at the time. Very impressive, and a very well put together object with some nice detailing.
