Thoughts on design by Paul Rand( Book )

46 editions published between 1947 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,167 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 )

"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 )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 56 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 field 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 Cézanne, 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 solve design problems by linking principles of aesthetics to the practice of design. Illustrating his ideas with examples of his own stunning graphic work, as well as an eclectic collection of masterpieces, Rand discusses such topics as: the relation between art and business; the presentation of design ideas and sketches to prospective clients; the debate over typographic style; and the aesthetics of combinatorial geometry as applied to the grid. His book will engage and enlighten anyone interested in the practice or theory of graphic design"--Publisher's description
