By Jessica Helfand
The talented author Jessica Helfand brings us two thorough, critical essays on a revered American graphic designer, the late Paul Rand. Paul Rand: American Modernist is a well-researched and objective look at the man who designed such enduring cultural icons as the IBM and Westinghouse trademarks. Helfand explores Rand’s far-reaching influence in the diverse realms of education, writing and design. Paul Rand: American Modernist ends with a selected chronology of Rand’s career. This intimate book was designed by William Drenttel and Jeffrey Tyson and its pages are skillfully set in Emigre’s Filosofia.
