Pentagram Papers is a multi-disciplinary, independently owned design studio.
According to their website: "Our work encompasses graphics and identity, strategy and positioning, products and packaging, exhibitions and installations, websites and digital experiences, advertising and communications, data visualizations and typefaces, sound and motion. Our 23 partners are all practicing designers, and whether working collaboratively or independently, they do so in friendship.
Our structure is unique. We are the only major design studio where the owners of the business are the creators of the work and serve as the primary contact for every client. This reflects our conviction that great design cannot happen without passion, intelligence and — above all — personal commitment, and is demonstrated by a portfolio that spans five decades, many industries, and clients of every size."
Pentagram has produced a series of signature annual documents, known as Pentagram Papers, exclusively for clients and colleagues since 1975. Each Paper explores a unique and curious topic of interest to the Pentagram designers.
#13: As described by Pentagram, " Pentagram Papers 13: Imprimeries Clandestines is a reprint from Le Point that contains first person accounts of the French writers and printers who risked their lives to form the underground publishing house Les Editions de Minuit, which published twenty-five volumes during the Nazi occupation. The photographs were taken by Robert Doisneau, who worked for the French Resistance during World War II."
In very good condition and a perfect addition to any lover of graphic design.
