Graphic Design Visionaries
Who better to create a publication about Graphic Designers than Caroline Roberts, journalist, author, founder and editor of ‘Grafik’ magazine since 2001.
This stunning publication by Laurence King Publishing Ltd, not only features 75 of the world’s most influential creators, but has a noteworthy 312 pages and boasts a wonderful collection of no less than 340 colour illustrations … Impressive!
Of course for me, I was sold as soon as I saw the cover and read that it includes such design greats as Erik Nitsche, Edward McKnight Kauffer and Tom Eckersley …
Paul Rand and Saul Bass, many of whom have already found their way into my blog.
There are many illustrations that I’ve seen before, but hadn’t previously known who the designer was. Like Lora Lamm, who’s Scooter girl image appeared in my post about Vespa Visions. Now I’m enlightened.
And Max Huber and Bruno Munari, who’s work I definitely need to delve into further.
With more entries on David Gentleman, Leo Lionni, Ken Garland, Franco Grignani and Tomato, I can see this glossy publication is going to be a fascinating reference book for posts to come ! Watch this space lol
It’s released this month, so go treat yourself with a copy today.
