Last Saturday I’ve got lucky to get the Pentagram’s out-of-print book – purely by accident, but couldn’t be happier. Thanks to such amazing book stores like Strand Book Store in NYC, one can find real gems! I bought almost all my graphic design books there, and less expensive than anywhere else as well.
Why I love the works of Pentagram? There are just so many reasons, one of which – the works of Paula Scher, who’s been a part of this design shop since 1991 and created some of the best branding identities for New York City alone.
And even though you won’t be able to find this book at the bookstores anymore, unless some shop has it hidden somewhere, there are more books by Pentagram available for purchase.
