Charlotte Perriand, L’aventure japonaise

Ce livre retrace l’aventure exceptionnelle d’une femme, architecte, pionnière de la modernité, proche de Le Corbusier, Fernand Léger et Juan Miró, qui au milieu du XXe siècle a su établir un trait d’union encore vivace, aujourd’hui entre l’Europe et le Japon. De Charlotte Perriand, Sôri Yanagi pensait: “De tous les occidentaux qui ont travaillé au Japon, c’est probablement elle qui a eu la plus grande influence sur le monde du design japonais.”

Phil Baines, Penguin by Design

January 1st, 2005  |  by  |  published in Boeken Janantoon | Comments Off on Phil Baines, Penguin by Design

Phil Baines wrote a highly documented history of cover design in the 70 year existence of Penguin pockets. To some extend it is even a history of graphic design as a profession.
It is endearing to see prints of the earliest Penguins. The earliest one I have is the 1956 edition of CS Forester’s The African Queen. The design is misleadingly simple: the cover layout was fixed for the series by Hans Schmoller based on preliminary work by Jan Tschichold and Erik Ellegaard Frederiksen. The same vertical grid is used in the 1961 edition of CP Snow’s The Conscience of the Rich. This vertical grid was recently (2004) reused for the special edition of Orwell’s Why I write.

Alan Fletcher, The art of looking sideways

This book is full of ideas, theories, funny things, and what is more: it is DESIGN… An ideal present, but buy two of them, or you won’t give it away after all.
