4.0 out of 5 stars More than just a good coffee table read..., 6 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Paul Rand (Paperback)
One of the twentieth century's greatest designers. This book is a well written and insightful account of the work of Paul Rand, revealing his inspirations and methodologies. As a book on design, it is also well illustrated with numerous examples of Rand's work, which prove that great design is timeless! Moreover, it reinforces the fact that it is about solutions not technology. In that way it reminds many practising designers, myself included, that good design has nothing to do with the capabilities of the latest software... but of the ability of the mind to solve visual communication problems. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for any graphic designer, 26 Oct. 1999
This review is from: Paul Rand (Hardcover)
Paul Rand is an inspiration. This is a book that demonstrates fabulous thinking, wonderful work & the brilliantly told story of the man who revolutionsed graphic design. The worst thing about this book is that it is just does not have enough pages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, Interesting and Inspiring, 14 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Paul Rand (Paperback)
I bought this book a while ago and it was sitting on my shelf for months - but once I finally opened it I couldn't put it down. It's written in a simple and informative manner that gives me a taste of not only Paul but the times that he lived in, his professional contemporaries and parallel design trends.
I read this book with an iPad right next to me constantly Googeling artists and books that the writer is mentioning. It's is more of a journey into an era than just story or biography - and as a designer I feel inspired. My creative juices are flowing and fresh ideas filling my minds eye.
The format of the book is great, and the paper quality is superb.
I had to take one star off because some of the images are tiny for no apparent reason.
But other then this it's a highly recommended book!
