Quotes, Quips, and Words of Wisdom, edited by Sara Bader, Hardcover
The Designer Says will resemble a dinner party, with a graphic designer from the eighteenth century sitting next to one practicing today, or two contemporary designers talk to each other, complimenting, competing, disagreeing, Occasionally, a critic will add his or her two cents to the mix.
The second in the PAP quotation book series (following The Architect Says) and the first well-designed book that focuses solely on quotations by leading graphic designers. The quotations play off each other in each spread, creating a spirited back and forth from page to page.
