Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two books in one, this collection of graphic representations of 100 male names flips over to reveal a book of 100 female names—both chock full of wonderfully expressive graphic design and typography

 

From Aaron to Will and Angie to Wendy, common names get an illustrative treatment by PatrickGeorge founder Peter Scott. They are revealed in a realignment of their letters, visually represented, or just implied—making some enjoyably obvious and others tantalizingly obscure. What is hidden in Marshall, Phoebe, Jack, Harry, or Adam? What do most people think of when they read Carrie, Olive, or Benjamin? This collection brilliantly and graphically conveys one set of associations with these names.
