After reading the Vignelli Canon I was intrigued and in love with the work that Massimo and Lella have produced over the years. They are a rare breed of designers that can do great work across multiple fields of design.
Vignelli: From A to Z is a collection of ideas – starting with Ambiguity and going through Books, Discipline, Furniture, The history of Helvetica, Interiors, Magazines, Objects, Products, Quality, Responsibility, Typography and more.
If you can’t get enough of their work then you should read this book. You will love it!
Here’s a snippet from the book on the subject of typography:
Type is important, do not misunderstand me, but structure should always come first. It is important to know the history of type, since its invention by Gutenberg.
