Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 2006, Stefan Sagmeister published Things I have learned in my life so far, a book born from a running list he keeps in his diary. With the support of his clients, Sagmeister began transforming these personal maxims into typographic artworks, which appeared on billboards, in magazines, and in public spaces all over the world. The result is an intriguing blend of personal revelation, visual audacity, and examination of the pursuit of happiness.

This revised and updated edition includes all of the aphorisms from the first book along with an additional 48 pages of new ones, and incorporates recent material from Sagmeisterand#8217;s exhibitions at the Deitch Projects gallery in Soho and the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, as well as his current project, The Happy Film. The book retains its unique packaging, now with 18 unbound signatures gathered into a laser-cut slipcase.

Synopsis:

Created to accompany an international traveling exhibition, Another Book about Promotion and Sales Material explores the work of one of the worldand#8217;s most famous graphic designersand#8212;Stefan Sagmeister. Divided into four sections, and including commissioned work from ten years of graphic design, this book explores how Sagmeister creates greater awareness for corporaandshy;tions, his friends, his own work, and cultural events and products.

Showcasing a wide range of work, from a Talking Heads boxed set, to print ads for Leviand#8217;s, to a wedding invitation for close friends, this book includes exclusive images from the studio archive as well as Sagmeisterand#8217;s commentary on his work, which contains his characteristic wit and insight. The result is a funny, revealing, and intimate look at the cutting-edge work of a graphic design master.
