Daily Book Graphics #996

All of these were originally published in the early 1980s and reprinted in 1991, a little later than I normally post here, but the covers were designed by the modern master Massimo Vignelli.

Daily Book Graphics #994

©1965 / I found some interesting stuff in this book. A filled out, but never mailed, Newsweek subscription card, a 1972 Scientology flyer, and the question "Does art differ from science?" written in the upper left hand corner across from the title page.

Design Damage

When this catalog (which I designed) was published in September of 2010 I dropped off a copy at the tiny cafe I go to every day (I also do their design). This is what it looks like now. Pristine version here.

©1973 / I love this Brooks/Cole series, judging from the list of titles on the back there should be more great covers to find from this era. I previously posted the two covers below.

Identity for the Echo Art Fair

I recently designed the identity and web site for the echo Art Fair a contemporary art fair in it's second year in Buffalo, New York. The fair happens July 7-8 of this summer. The images below are from the simple slide show of multiplying booth graphics I have on the landing page.
