Concept, book & jacket design: The Art Book: 500 of the worlds most famous artists

Phaidon Press
1996

The idea for The Art Book was born out of the extraordinarily rich archives of art and design publisher Phaidon. It presents an A to Z of famous artist as an accessible introduction to the world of fine art. For instance, Leonardo Da Vinci and Roy Lichtenstein share a spread. Translated into over 30 languages The Art Book was on The Times newspaper top ten list of books for several months. Each of the 30 letters on the covers employs a different technique, medium or texture – to express the variety of painting styles demonstrated within. This format has now grown into a series which includes titles such as The American Art Book, The Twentieth Century Art Book, The Photography Book, The Fashion Book, The Movies Book. There is also a miniature softback series.
