Thoughts on design by Paul Rand( Book )

45 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,107 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 862 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

From Lascaux to Brooklyn by Paul Rand( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's leading graphic designers. Paul Rand has had a profound influence on the design profession: his pioneering work in the fields of advertising design and typography has helped elevate "commercial art" to one of the fine arts. In this lively and visually arresting book. Rand awakens readers to the lessons of the cave paintings of Lascaux - that art is an intuitive, autonomous, and timeless activity - and he shows how this is conveyed in works of art from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to a painting by Cezanne. African sculpture, a Gorgan pitcher, and a park in Brooklyn, all of which are aesthetically pleasing no matter what their era, place, purpose, style, or genre. Rand defines aesthetics and the aesthetic experience, in particular as it affects the designer, and he helps members of his profession articulate and understand design problems by linking principles of aesthetics to the practice of design
