It’s that time of year when the pre-holiday spirit befalls us all and we give thanks for all the books we can buy. Here are some of my recent projects to give as gifts. Please order from the retailer of your choice. And if you send me a self-addressed, stamped envelope, I’d be happy to sign to you or a loved one.
The first is the most recent history of the Moderns by Greg D’onofrio and me. The Moderns: Midcentury American Graphic Design (Abrams Books) is a survey of over 60 designers who interpreted, communicated and practiced a distinct form of American modernism. Click here for a preview.
Next up is a book called TypeWrap by Rick Landers and me, featuring typographic wrapping paper and matching labels that you can use to wrap The Moderns in.
Play “name that type style, type designer and type genre” with this beautifully designed desktop typeface reference, TypeDeck (Thames and Hudson), designed by Rick Landers and written by me. The package consists of 54 cards showing a letter design on the front and its history and historical images on the back. Hours of type fan fun.
