I’ve only had this book a few days so it’s no surprise I’ve not read it. In fact, I’ll never read it. That's the point of this blogging series.
I like Paula and her work a lot. Her output is vast and the book reflects that, page after page of bold, vibrant, energetic graphic design. I flick through it in the video below and I think it’s the longest video in this series. Some lovely work in there. Nice big pictures.
There’s an interview by Shaughnessy, he’s good at that sort of thing so I would imagine that’s good too.
They also discuss some of the projects in depth and where Paula has worked with a client a long time, like Public Theater, that format looks like it works really well. As ever Paula has strong opinions and isn't afraid to state them.
Any graphic design that isn’t by Paula, like the cover and the chapter pages, I presume were designed by Tony Brook and Spin. They are lovely and fit the subject without getting in the way. The book is too heavy to read, like all good design books.
Here's a video of me flicking through the book. Excitingly this one has sound.
You should probably buy this and you can from Unit Editions.
