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!
