The Daily Gorilla : graphic comments on the world's news

The following project presented by GoSee is not about posing, pushing print runs, or winning awards. Yet, all these do of course play a part, however minimal, in its overall running and functions. The so-called Gorilla Column on the left of the front page of the Dutch De Volkskrant daily newspaper, is a constant artistic element in the daily dialogue the newspaper shares with its readers.

After ten years of hot discussion, the miniature works of art are now collected in a book. "The Gorilla designers do our culture, and design, a great service.” States John L. Walters, editor of Eye Magazine, in his introduction to the book.

The highlight : in the book, pieces aren’t simply thoughtlessly printed in chorological order, they have been organised into themes and presented in the right context – a must-have for the visually stimulated, virgin Politics student, or for comic fans of an advanced “I Don’t Care Anymore” age, or for the expenses scandalous politicians, who now have more time on their hands, and could do with a bit of a laugh to cheer them up.

Even if you don’t understand much of the language – you could always click on the link and order a T-SHIRT of your favourite column instead.
