Marc Eckō started out with a sketchbook. He got into business with a can of spray paint. He once tagged Air Force One (or at least: it looked that way). And today, he’s the man behind a billion dollar lifestyle empire: eckō unltd. and Complex media.
Making a book was an awesome experience, but you can only fit so much in a print book. Bittorrent blew all those constraints apart. Now I’m able to share my first book (my Black Book) — with the original designs I did when I was painting T-shirts in my garage from 1989-1993. I’m fired up to share that, raw and all. It completes the Unlabel experience.

In this BitTorrent Bundle: we get inside Eckō’s head. This is the true story of how ecko unltd. went from sketch to sustainable business. And here’s how you can do the same. Eckō’s new book, Unlabel, is out today. We’re giving BitTorrent readers a first look. Steal this book, do more, and fear less.
The BitTorrent Bundle features 1 GB of original artwork from Eckō’s journal. Thumb through the prototype for Complex magazine. Read through the rough business plan for eckō unltd. See the debut collection from the renowned designer, circa 1990. And unlock Unlabel: lessons from the front lines of fashion and media. This is the blueprint for building a lasting business. Now, it belongs to the Internet.

About BitTorrent Bundle
BitTorrent Bundle is an Alpha project, made with and for the web’s creative community. Our mission is to help artists connect directly with fans, inside the content they share.
Each BitTorrent Bundle, like this one, created in partnership with Marc Eckō, allows artists to distribute content directly to the Internet. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address. The idea is to make each song a storefront, and each file more valuable, each time it’s shared. Got ideas for the next BitTorrent Bundle?
