Some of the biggest names in British fashion and art, ranging from royal wedding-dress designer Sarah Burton to sculptor Marc Quinn, were paired-up in a unique collaboration to create works to celebrate 'Olympic Values'. Called Britain Creates 2012. The project was billed as a highlight of the London 2012 Festival. This book presents the results of these unprecedented collaborations, across different artistic mediums, from: Christopher Bailey, Charming Baker, Sarah Burton, Hussein Chalayan, Dinos Chapman, Giles Deacon, Jeremy Deller, Jess Flood-Paddock, Christopher Kane, Mary Katrantzou, Stella McCartney, Erdem Moralioglu, Marc Quinn, Jonathan Saunders, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood. The artists and designers created works representing Strength, Courage, Might, Speed, Power, Truce or Stamina, bringing Olympic and Paralympic values to life through a project that salutes the longstanding connection between fashion and the visual arts. This lavishly illustrated book endeavours to show, when great minds collide, amazing things happen. Packaged as a box set containing 2 volumes, a CD and nine posters of the finished artworks. Edward Booth-Clibborn is a publisher, author and editor of many award-winning books, including books on Damian Hirst and Young British Art of the Saatchi decade. Jonathan Barnbrook is graphic designer.
