Ivan Chermayeff


Here are a couple of pictures from Chermayeff's book Suspects, Smokers, Soldiers and Salesladies.

I scanned some of this book when I took it out of the library and scan through it periodically. I dig collage work like this and need to do more. I don't know why I don't. When I think about it it seems like the clearest of ideas, the greatest thing to do and yet here I am not doing it at all.

Anyway it reminds me of some Alan Fletcher stuff and I basically love him so that's good.
Incidentally Fletcher's book The Art of Looking Sideways is one of the best things in the world.
