An indespensible book if you can find it. 27 Sept. 2000
By Max Fento̶n - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's 2:40 in the morning; I'm recovering from a nasty headcold. What could possibly have me awake and typing?
I've poured over 175 beautiful pages for the last day, and now I just want to read everything she's written.
Delving into the graphic design industry, its history and heroes, particularly since the advent of the Macintosh and desktop publishing both inspires and entertains.
A fabulously researched book with exquisite reproductions and wonderful design of its own.
