35. Alex Trochut’s Penguin Books Galaxy Series

Alex Trochut

Alex Trochut’s covers for the Penguin Books Galaxy Series beautifully capture the unique essence of the captivating stories that made each book a pioneer of its time. The covers’ typographic compositions and bright colors are inspired by the books’ settings and narratives. For Robert A. Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land (1961), Trochut cleverly arranges the type to highlight and represent the clash of views addressed in the novel. The word “stranger” appears facing a different direction than “strange land.”

TD 63-73: Total Design and its pioneering role in graphic design (Expanded Edition) 
By Ben Bos / Edited by Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy / Design by Spin
Published by Unit Editions
520 Pages

Total Design began in Amsterdam in 1963. Ben Bos joined the founders (Wim Crouwel, Benno Wissing, Friso Kramar and the Schwarz Brothers) from the outset. Together and individually, they set new benchmarks for typography, identity design, cultural design, exhibition design and product design. These benchmarks have rarely, if ever, been surpassed.

The expanded edition of TD 63-73 is a unique insider’s account of Total Design’s golden period. It contains hundreds of images from the TD archive, and in Ben Bos’s text the reader is given a personal history of a design group that remains as important today as it did when it launched in 1963.

Expanding on this original edition, this new edition features an updated and extended text by Ben Bos that looks beyond 1973, as well as many previously unseen images from his personal archive.

The Brownstone
By Paula Scher and Stan Mack / Published by Princeton Architectural Press
32 Pages

Living in harmony with your neighbor isn’t always easy, but it’s doubly difficult if you’re a bear living in a New York City brownstone, getting ready to hibernate, and the kangaroos’ tap dancing upstairs and Miss Cat’s piano playing reverberate through the walls and floors. But Miss Cat has her own complaint: the cooking smells from the pigs downstairs. Happily, the wise owl landlord rearranges everybody so they can live in peace. This warm and funny story, slightly revised from the 1972 original, shows the young reader that you can learn to respect and live with others who are different from you.
