Minus Equals Plus: Istvan Banyai
Minus Equals Plus: Istvan Banyai
by Istvan Banyai
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly inspiring, 7 April 2006
Banyai draws illustrations that I wish I could have done. Not simply the style but the originality of subject. No words are neccessary in this collection just open up and gaze at the contents. Crisp lines and solid colours bring to life a world that could only be dreamt up by an illustrator with a very personal outlook on life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tim Burton owes Gorey sooooo much!, 6 April 2006
The macabre and slightly gothic outlook is so personal to Gorey simply mentioning Burton does him an injustice. A darker outlook on a world that has glances at Lewis Carroll. The earlier in age someone discovers Gorey the better!

5.0 out of 5 stars A design manifesto, 6 April 2006
A design manifesto from a designer who influenced typography more than most. Don't let people tell you that because Tschichold later recanted the main arguments presented here that this isn't relevant, it STILL is.
Any serious student of design should own this book not simply borrow it from the college library. There can be few times when a whole different style of design are shown to have had a call to arms that are available to purchase still. This is the call to arms of what became the new international style of design.

1.0 out of 5 stars Uncreative splats, 6 April 2006
Half-baked and ill-concieved. A poor man's "Art of looking sideways" that gets nowhere near the mark. I've had more inspiration waiting at a bus stop than with this book. I don't like to be negative but I don't want anyone else wasting their hard earned money. It's a pity because it's obvious time was spend producing this book that could have been spent doing something better.

5.0 out of 5 stars The bible of hand lettering, 11 Oct. 2001
This is the man who rediscovered the broad nib pen and techniques for its use. This is the man who taught Eric Gill (of Gill Sans fame). This is the book that is in the bibliography of every well respected book on lettering. This is the book every professional letterer should have on their book-shelf.
This is the bible of lettering. Buy two copies, as your first will wear out, you just keep on referring to it.
