Lemon Poppy Seed,
This review is from: Lemon Poppy Seed: Multitasking Creativity (Paperback)
Anyone Googling "lemon poppy seed" for the recipe might be surprised to see this book pop up in the search. But, if you're an artist or designer in any of the visual fields, you'll find this 272 page softcover a breath of free air. The book design, by noted publisher Gestalten Verlag, is kept to a minimum. The only text includes the name of the artists, the title of the pieces, and the page numbers. There's also no introduction, artists' statements, interviews, manifestos, etc. to sway your opinions, allowing you to freely explore the terrain on your own. This international collection of contributors features spread after spread in lush colors and subtle muted tones. Any black and white art/photography has the full tonal range from 0 white to 100 black. If you liked the style and content of the soon-to-be-reinstated "GRAPHIC" magazine, but without all the tiny text, then you'll no doubt find these works inspiring. If only this were an exhibition catalog from a traveling show. That way, you might get the chance to see these works in person.
