13 Books (notes on the design, construction & marketing of my last . . .) [PDF]

by Leonard Koren
Author/designer Leonard Koren looks at the bookmaking process behind each of his creations, from inspiration and organizing page principle to greatest difficulty and enduring lesson. Self-reflective and demythologizing, 13 Books is an observant guide to the creative process and to the essential link between information, commerce, and visual form in our culture today. It will be of special interest to graphic/web designers and art directors.

Leonard Koren lives in San Francisco and Tokyo and trained as an artist and architect. His "13 books" include WET Magazine, Wabi-Sabi, and How to Take a Japanese Bath.
