100 Maverick Postcards by Alan Fletcher

This cover is wrapped around the outside of a wooden box containing postcards of Fletcher’s designs. Required ownage for design-related persons.

(It’s printed on newsprint so it’s yellowed like crazy since I got it four years ago. Scanned and shared for posterity.)

Preliminary concept sketches for S,M,L,XL by Rem Koolhaas and Bruce Mau, presented at the AA’s Book Machine exhibition.
Texts reads, from left to right:
The book is conceived as a block of information.
The number represent six “families” of projects presented in the book. Each of these groups is presented in a differenct spirit - in a form appropiate to its contents.
These two components, the Dictionary and the project “families” run on parallel tracks throughout the book … Through their proximity, these incongruous parts activate each other.
Each spread within this block is a moment in time - a freeze-frame … the typography no longer has to pretend coherence for the entire length of the book. Instead, it will be a sequence of calibrated episodes…the typography equivalent of the plot.

This is a thing I visited recently, at the Kemistry Gallery in Shoreditch. Behind the scenes of my all-time favourite book (including fiction) that got me properly into design. All the original drawings and hand-written notes on the walls were mesmerising. Img/Archiclog and I didn’t want to leave but we Other Stuff to See.

I couldn’t afford the poster, it was embarrassing.

Physical models make the invisible visible: the rules that apply to matter and time become evident to the model maker and thus become filters for his or her design explorations. Suddenly, the designer is faced with both the limitations of the material and its opportunities in the real world. 

—From author Megan Werner’s preface to Model Making.
