1000 Heads: the book

1000 heads, my illustration book

Inspiring books for the creative type


Steven Heller

Steven Heller, the well-known designer, art director and author of many books on graphic design, illustration and typography (and a very good book on Paul Rand) has launched his own web site: I think it is remarkable for some podcasts of his lectures for the School of Visual Arts and other institutions and events.
Check out his lecture about the sixties in design, well documented and attractive, available as a quicktime movie.
One funny detail that I had already read in Milton Glaser’s Graphic design is the fact that the illustrations of this period by Glaser are often regarded as quintessential psychedelic imagery, but the strongest motivation for his style of clear line drawings filled in flat colours was saving time and effort at a moment when they were getting many commissions. The other pillar of the Push Pin Studio at the time, Seymour Chwast, also adopted a similar style, much simpler than his more time-consuming and richly textured woodcuts.
