About this title:

Synopsis: A study of the life and work of the graphic designer who created a new look in fashion publications and whose teaching inspired the design profession

From Publishers Weekly: "Astonish me!" was Alexey Brodovitch's constant admonition to the artists, photographers and designers he directed through his long career as a pacesetter of graphic design. As art director of Harper's Bazaar from the depths of the Depression to the high plateau of Eisenhower optimism, he changed the role of graphics and the graphic artist in daily life. In this strikingly handsome book, Grundberg, photography critic for the New York Times , chronicles his subject from dashing Russian emigre to dean of American art directors. A case can be made that as a theorist Brodovitch anticipated the work of Moholy-Nagy, but he wrote little, preferring to devote himself to his work and his many proteges. Besides discussing and unveiling Brodovitch's designs and photos--including a brilliant set for the Ballets Russes--the author also sets the work of such master photographers as Avedon, Penn, Brassai and Cartier-Bresson in context.

Book Description Harry N. Abrams, New York, 1989. Hardcover. Condition: Fine in Near Fine DJ. First Edition. Tight, bright and unmarred. DJ shows minimal shelf wear, very slight mark from security device on inside (these should be banned), else bright and clean. Black cloth boards, gray ink lettering, in blind decorative elements, glossy black endpages. 4to. 159pp. Chronology. Bibliography. Notes. Biographical Timeline (foldout). "Brodovitch was the model of the modern art director. The essence of contemporary magazine design - the driving pursuit of new ways to present visual material - can be traced to the example he set. While at Harper's Bazaar from 1935 to 1958, he created a design look whose energy, elegance, and simplicity captured the spirit of American fashion. Magnetic and controversial, he inspired the designers and photographers who attended his famous design laboratory with his constant admonition, "Astonish me!" (from the front cover). A near pristine copy of an increasingly scarce volume. Seller Inventory # 798
