    If you're interested in book and magazine design this is a great book about one of the best european-american desginers of the 20th century. The book covers all of his life, not just the famous Harper's Bazaar years, and is full of images of his designs from all peridos of his life. Purcell compiled a lot of the information in the book through interviews with Brodovitch's friends and family, which is nice.

    The great graphic sense that Alexey Brodovitch had for the printed page or book page is magnificent. Double spead designs, total book or magazine geek stuff.
