Thoughts on design by Paul Rand( Book )

50 editions published between 1947 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rand is one of the world's leading graphic designers He first published his 'Thoughts on design' in 1947, with an introduction by McKnight Kauffer. For this edition he has revised both text and pictures, thus providing students and the general public with a new version of a work that has long been regarded as a classic on its subject. Uncompromising and experienced, the author demonstrates that sound and serious theory is practical. He is aware of the complexity of the designer's function and has no patience with slickness or insincerity, which he regards as dead wood that must first be cleared away. Then 'copy', art, and typography are seen as living entity'-a point that is made abundantly clear in the visual arrangement of this book. His advice is at all times helpful to the student who really wants to practice design seriously as well as to anyone interested in good design."--book jacket

Paul Rand by Steven Heller( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and German and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Rand (1914-96) was a pioneering figure in American graphic design. Adopting what he called a 'problem solving' approach to design, he drew on the ideas of European avant-garde art movements, such as Cubism, Constructivism and De Stijl, and synthesized them to produce his own distinctive graphic language." "Rand's career spanned almost seven decades and numerous chapters of design history. His own books are solidly thematic, whereas this definitive collection of his key published and proposed works is medium-driven. It explores the full range of his advertising, publishing and corporate identity work." "This detailed survey marks the first complete retrospective of Rand's powerful body of work."--Jacket
