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 …

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.

Abram Games’s Festival of Britain Poster and Olt Aicher’s Olympic Posters, have also both had a mention on Fishink Blog.

And Max Huber and Bruno Munari, who’s work I definitely need to delve into further.

    Oh this looks wonderful! Droooool…..

    I went to the exhibition of Abram Games work at The Jewish Museum in London some months back, and it was truly fab.
