Or quite likely you have seen some of his work, and never knew the man behind such world famous, global dominating logos. This has to be the most in depth Paul Rand book I have read, and I have borrowed many from various libraries. Which inclines me to say that if the history of design has ever intrigued you or you just like Mr.Rands work, then this is probably the best choice for you. Not only does it have a ton of images but it's probably the best bang for you buck as far as Rand books go.
Lots of full color samples of Rand's work to coincide with the text, which is nice.
Overall, this book is a great resource. It's too bad the type is so difficult to read.

I read this book with an iPad right next to me constantly Googeling artists and books that the writer is mentioning. It's is more of a journey into an era than just story or biography - and as a designer I feel inspired. My creative juices are flowing and fresh ideas filling my minds eye.
The format of the book is great, and the paper quality is superb.
I had to take one star off because some of the images are tiny for no apparent reason.
But other then this it's a highly recommended book!
The quality of the product is exceptional and good value for money. All images beautifully produced.
The only thing I would say in the negative is that the text is small and probably has too much detail. I will find the time to read the full text someday - at the moment I am skimming it.
