Vignelli Drawings: A Collection of Sketches for Book Design

This product is currently out of stock.

Vignelli Drawings: A Collectionof Sketches for Book Design allows readers to look inside Massimo Vignelli's book design process. Never seen before, ten of his book designs are deconstructed showing his page grid, hand drawn sketches and the photography on the printed pages. Vignelli said, "The grid is an integral part of book design. It's not something that you see physically. It's just like underwear. You wear it but it is not exposed." In this age of digital visualization, it is refreshing to see a master designer's ability at drawing.

The Vignelli Center for Design Studies leads through practice and programs in the interpretation of quality design. We strive to inspire widespread recognition of how the artifacts we collect, preserve and understand broaden and enrich life. We do so as stewards of the legacy of Massimo and Lella Vignelli, who valued excellence, creativity and innovation.

Massimo and Lella Vignelli were committed to a generous and important initiative at RIT. As world-class designers with over fifty years of combined career success, the Vignellis always made education a high priority. As a result of their close collaboration with RIT and its design faculty and administration, RIT has established the Vignelli Center for Design Studies.
