I don’t usually promote Kickstarter projects, or I would be inundated with requests. But I am intimately involved with this one: To print a faithful facsimile of Ladislav Sutnar’s most important design book, Ladislav Sutnar: Design in Action.


Out of print for decades, Visual Design in Action is one of the most beautiful books on modern graphic design. Written and designed by Ladislav Sutnar and published in 1961, it has been called a “lost milestone” and a “treasure.”

With your help, we’re going to create a perfect reprint of this iconic book and make it available again to the creative community.

The Kickstarter kicked off this morning and will go on for 36 days. As you will see on the site there are bonuses to be had, but the greatest bonus is having Lars Muller overseeing the meticulous production of this cherished volume. To help fund this project go here.


Print’s Regional Design Annual 2015: Enter Today!The 2015 Regional Design Annual is still open—but only until May 15. Don’t miss your chance to have your work reviewed by the best minds in design today and to be spotlighted in our most popular issue of the year—the industry’s most prestigious and well-respected annual.
