Adrian Shaughnessy: Scratching the Surface

Adrian Shaughnessy

Continuing with Unit Editions thoughtfully curated collection of design related titles comes, Scratching the Surface, a selection of writings by Adrian Shaughnessy. Over the past 18 years, Adrian has contributed significantly to the ongoing discourse centered around graphic design. His highly successful How to be a Graphic Designer Without Losing your Soul has sold over 80,000 copies worldwide and has become a staple for young designers seeking practical advice. With this latest volume, we are presented with a sampling of essays and reviews that helped establish Adrian as an authoritative and critical voice within the design community.

Featured are musings and meditations on music and art with ample space dedicated to Adrian’s writings on graphic design. Designed by Spin, the layout is sparse, but complete with liberal amounts of pink adding a much-needed visual punch.
