RIT's Vignelli Center for Design Studies has produced a new book, VIGNELLI DRAWINGS. For the first time readers can 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.
