The T–shirt may be the most ubiquitous, affordable, and popular item of clothing. Over the years it has served as a means to broadcast social, musical and political affiliations. Most recently, the T–shirt has become a creative tool for expressing inventive design.

Founded in 1986, Beams T regards the T–shirt as a canvas for new ideas in art and design and each year of their 20–year history, has invited artists from around the world to create designs for their T–shirts.

In this book, 350 of the best of these T–shirt designs are featured in full color.

Accompanying the book will be a CD ROM of flash animation which will allow readers to create their own t–shirts.
