The Subway Sun, Volume 7, 1986; Design by DAVID SCHMIDLAPP


The Subway Sun (IGTimes), David Schmidlapp, Art Director, full issue, Issue 7, 1986. Side A: two-color offset on glossy paper; Side B: two -color offset on glossy paper, 17 1/2 x 22 1/2 in.

In addition to complete sets of IGTimes, Gallery 98 is also offering for sale four individual IGTimes pages.  Although widely disparate in design, all copies of IGT were printed as double-sided sheets measuring 17 x 22 in.  These pages were then folded like maps and in most cases their design reflects the folded partitions. In a few instances pages were conceived as single entities so they could be unfolded and hung as posters.  It is these poster-style pages that we are selling here separately.

This is the complete issue #7.  In setting the initial style of IGTimes, David Schmidlapp was influenced by counter-culture publications like punk zines, as well as the overlap and density of subway art.
