U.P. 10


In celebration of their 10 year anniversary, Upper Playground have released “U.P. 10″, the definitive book of Upper Playground featured artwork from the last 10 years. That comes to more than 2,000 graphics on over 600 pages!

The book features artwork from hundreds of Upper Playground affiliated artists. If you’re wondering who, then start with these guys:

Jeremy Fish, Sam Flores, Dalek, Cody Hudson, Grotesk, Maya Hayuk, Retna, Dave Ellis, David Choe, Morning Breath, Estevan Oriol, Mars-1, Andy Mueller, Greg “Craola” Simkins, GIANT, Paul Insect, Basco, Munk One, Saber, Marok, Cycle, Alex Pardee, Phase 2, Revolt, Anthony Lister, Masa, Ricky Powell, Tiffany Bozic, Denis Kennedy, Ian Johnson, Herbert Baglione, and that is literally just a start.

If all the sickeningly good artwork and graphics isn’t enough to wet your taste buds, there is also an interview with each artist.

Essentially, if you like Upper Playground, then this book is well worth investing in. I have several of the previous U.P. books and they are a great addition to the bookshelf, although there is a perfect 10″ x 8″ gap next to them, and I  think it’s about time that this book found it’s rightful place on my bookshelf.


“U.P. 10″ is available instore at Upper Playground as of now for £45. And as you can only get it instore, let me direct those that are eager, as it is rather hard to find:
