Full Description
Another instalment of the highly acclaimed Design series, this time looking at contemporary designer David Gentleman (b.1930). David's early training engraving designs on small boxwood blocks ensured that his unique style retains the characteristic intensity of the miniaturist even when it is enlarged. He attended the Royal College of Art in Kensington from the autumn of 1950, and was tutored by some of the finest artists of the time, including Edward Bawden and John Nash. Lithography became his medium of choice and he has since worked on projects as diverse as designs for postage stamps and wine labels to the hundred-metre long panels at Charing Cross Station.

The Design series is the winner of the Brand/Series Identity Category at the British Book Design and Production Awards 2009, judges said: "A series of books about design, they had to be good and these are. The branding is consistent, there is a good use of typography and the covers are superb."
