Book Description

17 Sep 2013
The projects in this book began as a list Stefan Sagmeister found in his diary under the title "Things I have learned in my life so far." Given an incredible amount of freedom by some of his clients, he began transforming these aphorisms into typographic works; they have since appeared as French and Portuguese billboards, a Japanese annual report, on German television, in an Austrian magazine, as a New York direct mailer and as an American poster campaign. Taken together, the collection is part design project, part work of art, part examination of the pursuit of happiness. To this end, noted designer Steven Heller, art critic and curator Nancy Spector and psychologist and Happiness: The Science Behind Your Smile author Daniel Nettle contribute essays to the book. The new edition contains three additional signatures (48 pages) covering new works, such as the Dietch Gallery exhibition in SOHO that coincided with the book's opening and The Happy Film, a documentary that Stefan is launching next autumn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Stylized - love at first sight 3 Nov 2013
By Rachel Ramsey - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE!! There are small leaflets with photos of his work from beginning to end and information about them all. The "box" it came in was highly stylized that I fell in love with the detailed die cut organic pattern that covers Sagmeister's face. I'm so happy to add this to my collection of designer books that I use for references over and over again.
