Unit Editions – Herb Lubalin

Unit Editions – Herb Lubalin

We post regularly about Unit Editions (the publishing collaboration between Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy) because we’re huge fans of their books. I’m so excited about their latest piece that I can’t wait until its out to post this (a review upon release will follow). The subject of the book is Herb Lubalin – one of the most loved, influential and renowned American graphic designers – who up till now has been poorly represented in print.

At close to 500 pages this hardback tome is not for the faint-hearted, but it surely deserves a spot on every studio / designers shelf (alongside Bass, RandDorfsmanGlaser).

Treat yourself – pre-order now and save yourself a tenner.

Roll on August!

 

This meticulously researched book offers a complete career overview of Lubalin, beginning with his early days as one of the original Mad Men in the New York advertising world of the 50s and 60s, and continuing into the years of his greatest achievements as one of the world’s most influential typographers and graphic designers.
