His innovative and contrarian mind led him to become the missionary for how design could improve the human condition. From this prophet of environmental, ecological, “appropriate” design on a human scale evolved a movement that has burgeoned globally.
Victor Papanek, Path of a Design Prophet author, Al Gowan, takes us on a personal path: through a chronology of Papanek’s life and work, through the words of those who lived and worked with him, as well as through Papanek’s own words.
Gowan’s engrossing treatment of his subject offers the reader the privilege of a close understanding of a courageous and provocative man and thinker.
This book is well researched and well-written. It is not a puff piece, but presents Victor accurately, including his faults, but not without sympathy. We who knew Victor personally will be delighted if this work results in renewed interest in Victor's books, and helps extend his influence directly to a new generation of designers.
