Graphis Annual 1960: one more thing I wish was on my bookshelf.
A couple interesting book covers via Grain Edit
You may remember the World of Logotypes book from this post. Well Eric Carl has graciously posted all of the pages from the book to his flickr. You can also download all the images in a handy Zip file directly from his blog. Thanks Eric, this is an invaluable resource. It would be great to see more people post out of print books; it’s really sad how inaccessible some of these old books have become.
Correction: As Eric pointed out in the comments, this is only about half of the book.
Today we went to Floating World Comics (thanks to J.Cross for the suggestion). They have a nice little collection of design books there, got a couple cool ones, I’ll post some pics up when I get home.
Very nice book cover via Grain Edit.
Some really nice modernist book covers featured over at Defunkt. I love this style of illustration, Mike Mills took a similar tact for the Beastie Boys Stereo Speaker poster. And of course, you really can’t lose with Trade Gothic.
