About

A beautiful book showcasing the talented designers working in the daily/limited tshirt world.

There is a mysterious world - a world where tshirts appear and disappear every 24 hours.The world of the limited shirt sites. From Sherlock to Star Wars via Mario, Hannibal, Ghibli and Dr Who. Every type of fandom, geekery, trend, style and coolness is covered.

Who creates these amazing designs? The VigilanTees – artists and sites that are doing it themselves. They’re taking on the ordinary, the boring, the dull. They have the skills to make incredible tshirts. They come from all over the world, working in a range of styles and influences.

So...what am I trying to do?

I want to create a 180 plus page high quality paper back book that revels in the artwork created by the talented designers - the VigilanTees. There is so much incredible work being produced and shared that it makes sense to view this output in a different medium.

Each designer featured will be interviewed, pick their favourite designs and show off some of their fans. I hope to give a real insight into the world of these designers - what inspires them? How did they become tshirt designers? How do they come up with their ideas?

I'm also going to include interviews and features on the websites that feature these designs. Want to know how these companies got started? What they want to achieve? This is the book for you.

Who's in the book?

The full VigilanTees team of designers

I've managed to get a plethora of talented artists and designers on board, we are talking about some of the top names working in the world of tshirt design.

VigilanTees will include the talents of:

Update!

I've expanded the list of artists contributing to the book. It will now also include the very talented:

I've also secured the participation of the big names in the limited tshirt world.

The awesome sites involved in the book.

The VigilanTees book will showcase all the amazing art seen on a daily basis across the limited shirt sites.

The lettering on the cover will be an exclusive by the legendary Tim Easley, and will also be available as a limited edition tshirt.

Where am I up to?

I've got the most important element in place, the artists and sites are on board. The content is coming in, interviews, images, fan photos etc. I've started working on page layouts, I'm trying to give each artist section it's own individual style and aesthetic.

I am so excited that I'm going to have the chance to showcase this amazing work.

Rewards

I really want there to be a range of backer rewards. At the moment they range from a copy of the book (naturally), to an exclusive range of tshirts and even limited edition inaction figures (sculpted by the incredibly talented @dr_monkeyface)

So what's the hold up?

The project is ready to go, it's a case of building the pages as the project develops, and then getting it off to the printers.

This book needs to happen. Let's make this a thing :)

Risks and challenges

I've got the connections with all the designers and websites - so it's a nice simple case of getting the content to me, and then onto the page. In those terms this is a relatively risk free project. I don't have a big publishing house behind me, VigilanTees is truly an independent labour of love. I have a vision on how awesome this book should be, and I'm going to ensure that's what happens.

Limiteed have picked up the 'printing the backer reward tshirts' mission - so that's all under control.

The book is being professionally printed by The Print House and will be checked to ensure the highest quality outcome.
