Thoughts on design by Paul Rand( Book )

47 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the seminal texts of graphic design, Paul Rand's Thoughts on Design is now available for the first time since the 1970s. Writing at the height of his career, Rand articulated in his slender volume the pioneering vision that all design should seamlessly integrate form and function. This facsimile edition preserves Rand's original 1947 essay with the adjustments he made to its text and imagery for a revised printing in 1970, and adds only an informative and inspiring new foreword by design luminary Michael Bierut. As relevant today as it was when first published, this classic treatise is an indispensable addition to the library of every designer." -- Publisher's description

Paul Rand by Steven Heller( Book )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and German and held by 864 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
