Este es el primero de 3 libros escritos por Helen Walters:
Helen Walters is a writer and editor who lives and works in New York. Formerly features editor and now contributing editor to Creative Review magazine in the UK, she has written about art, design, music, products and style for numerous international publications. She is also the author of a number of books on various design-related topics, including 100%, 200% and 300% Cotton, a successful series of titles on contemporary T-shirt graphics and a monograph on the Brooklyn-based design company, GH avisualagency. She is co-author, with Liz Faber, of Animation Unlimited: Innovative Short Films since 1940.
Following on the success of 100% Cotton, Helen Walters now presents an entirely new selection of cutting-edge shirts from the past couple of years. Far more than a casual article of clothing, the T-shirt is a portable personal ad, its wearer declaring their political/musical/social affiliations for the world to see. This book reflects the current diverse graphic culture of the medium, considering its use in areas such as music, politics and fashion. It encompassses tees commissioned by fashion labels and bands, photographs of T-shirts worn by passersby on the streets of cities around the world, shirts specially created around the theme of 200% and those that designers wear as their own personal portfolios. There are also inteviews with shirt-junkies whose collections extend to the thousands. The contemporary designers featured include Tyler Askew, Deanne Cheuk, GH avisualagency, Triboro, Fuck Yoga, Pottymouth, Danger, howies, JAKe, Mode 2, FL33, Happypets Products, Vier5, Neasden Control Centre, National Forest and Oeuf..
More than a cheap article of clothing, the T-shirt is a portable personal ad, its wearer declaring their political/musical/social affiliations for the world to see. Since the 1960s, the T-shirt has provided a forum for expression where anti-war slogans mixed with early counter-culture classics such as /’/Keep on Truckin/’/, and tie-dye mingled with the debut of that hardy perennial, the tour T-shirt – album cover graphic on the front, venue details listed on the back. This book reflects the diverse and rich graphic culture that has arisen from the medium, considering its use in areas such as music, politics and fashion. Featuring photographs of T-shirts worn on the street, specially commissioned T-shirt graphics, T-shirt collections, and the best and coolest graphics from around the world, 300% Cotton will appeal to designers, illustrators and art directors, as well as a general market of T-shirt enthusiasts and collectors.

From Cotton to T-shirt:
How is a T-shirt made? Soft white cotton is grown, picked, and sent to a factory. At the factory, machines spin the cotton into thread that is woeven into cloth, dyed, cut, and sewn into T-shirts that are sent on trucks to stores to be sold.
The T-shirt is a part of Americana, and nowhere is this reflected more than in the gay and lesbian community’s struggle for civil rights. Through imagination, wit, and a passion for equality, the activists who wrote, designed-and more importantly-wore the shirts helped define a movement. From the sad to the troubling, the poignant to the humorous, this is the definitive pop culture chronicler of our lives.
