9780811811996: The End of Print: The Graphic Design of David Carson

The End of Print is the definitive statement of the work of the great iconoclast designer, David Carson. In print for the first time in several years, this classic book has itself become part of the history of graphic design. It features work from the magazines where Carson first made his mark including Transworld Skateboarding, Surfer, Beach Culture and Ray Gun—as well as his instantly recognizable advertisements for clients such as Nike, Pepsi, MTV and Sony. Lewis Blackwell's text includes an interview in which Carson examines the origins of his approach and discusses the extreme reactions to his work.

From Library Journal:

This revised edition of the 1995 original features a new cover and a new opening chapter putting Carson's more recent work in context of the rest of his career. The text is brief, but the volume sports 225 images, including eight gatefolds. Even if you have the original, this enlarged, affordable title warrants purchase. An essential title for graphic design collections.
