Pentagram Referenced in ‘Graphic Design, Referenced’
Pentagram is featured throughout Graphic Design, Referenced, the new compendium/survey/ history/big essential design book by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Pentagram alumnus Armin Vit. Subtitled “A Visual Guide to the Language, Applications, and History of Graphic Design,” the book covers pretty much everything you need for a working knowledge of graphic design, with sections on the various design disciplines, the major figures in the field, the landmark projects, and rundowns of industry resources, production techniques and typography. Included are entries on Pentagram and Fletcher/Forbes/Gill, the proto-Pentagram; our partners Paula Scher and Michael Bierut; and our work for the Pocket Canons, The Public Theater, Saks, the Detroit Institute of Arts, and many, many others, with countless images.
