"The key word there is short. Short is good in design books. It's more like a collection of blog posts."

Just wanted to check.. aren't all the 'stories' referencing this list of blog posts by Bierut: http://designobserver.com/archives/author.html?id=19 ?? if so is there anything new/extra other than the book looking wonderfully designed? :)


Not all the stories are from Design Observer. A lot of them are from articles Bierut had written for magazines like Eye in the nineties.

I need to check, but I think all of them had been published somewhere else.
