Michael Gericke is one of the most influential graphic designers in the world today. This much anticipated monograph covers four decades of work by the acclaimed graphic designer and Pentagram partner. Lavishly illustrated throughout at close to 500 pages, the book is driven by a celebration of places, telling stories, and making images and symbols – predominantly through Gericke’s work with projects for buildings, civic moments, exhibitions and visual identities, including for posters, magazines, New York’s AIA chapter (America’s largest) and the Center for Architecture that, through graphics and images, continues to portray the spirit of architecture and design in New York City today. Prefaced by the prize-winning architect Moshe Safdie, with commentary by Pulitzer Prize-winning architectural critic and educator Paul Goldberger, this encyclopaedic compilation is a must for all collectors and aficionados of contemporary design, branding, and visual identity.
