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.
#33: Pentagram Papers 33: "For nearly 350 years the slide rule was considered the ultimate calculating tool. As beautiful and complex as fine pocket watches, slide rules are works of art and marvels of science. Lance Knobel's collection, published in Pentagram Papers 33: The Slide Rule Vanishes, charts the different variations along with some of their uses.”
In very good condition and a perfect purchase for any lover of graphic design.
