I have been a fan of the incredible, colorful, pattern-perfect work of Alexander Girard for years. And yesterday, much to my design delight but wallet dismay, I discovered this beautiful/expensive book about Girard published in 2011. Containing nearly every sketch, design and drawing Girard ever made, the 672-page book covers his entire career and is priced at a whooping $200 (reminds me of this Corbu text, also on my wish list). With that price tag, it will remain on my 'someday' list for now but don't these page spreads make it look totally dreamy? I could leaf through these all day!

  1. I recently received an e-mail from a Barristers Greg Law Firm out of United Kingdom England. They stated that they would help me with a loan & all I needed to do was Western Union some money to a Edo Nigeria. The guys name is Jame Anderson. I looked this up on the net & it looks as though this is a scam. I don't really know how this works, but I did NOT give them any information regarding bank, account numbers, etc. I need to know if anyone has ever heard of this group. I am very leary of this.
