(Preface) 'Seymour Chwast's distinctive graphic style and inventive art direction has had wide international influence on contemporary visual communications. Here, for the first time, is a masterful and instructive retrospective of his work.
Chwast's designs have been used for everything from product advertising to Forbes magazine campaigns, to Mobil Oil's sponsorship of Masterpiece Theatre and illustrations for the New York Times Op-Ed Page. He has created corporate logos, record covers, typefaces, greeting cards, children's books, ani-mated films, posters, packages—even a complete range of gift boxes; The Left-Handed Designer represents them all.
This lively new book, designed by Chwast himself, describes and illustrates the extraordinary range of the design problems he has faced, and the brilliant solutions he has worked out. A crisp commentary by the artist accompanies each illustration. This collection. II be of immense value to design students, illustrators, designers, advertising executives and many others who maintain an interest in the graphic arts.'
