FreeDarko’s Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac- 11.02.08

basketball.jpgWith a title like, FreeDarko presents The Macrophenomenal Pro Basketball Almanac: Styles, Stats, and Stars in Today’s Game… how can you not look twice? And then when you see the incredible illustrations? And that this is described as “The indispensible, amazingly illustrated companion to today’s NBA—a roundball Rosetta Stone that hilariously decodes the trends and tendencies of pro basketball.” on Amazon… I think we may have just found the perfect gift for both basketball fans and designers without a clue about the current state of the NBA… Who knew it’d be possible? And only at 15$!

The illustrations are drop dead gorgeous, the Style Guides incredible, and FreeDarko even has limited edition prints and shirts! First spotted over at Bobby Sattler’s Whole Lot of BS, then i got quickly distracted at the FreeDarko site (so gorgeous, and full of design details and digital goodies)… then got busy making pics for you to see my favorite excerpts from the book on the next page! So, go on, click to the next page and take a peek inside the book!

So like, Charlie Harper gets a nod somewhere, one hopes? Those birds on the first panel are a direct lift from his work.
