Victore or, Who Died and Made You Boss

James Victore is often referred to as ‘the angriest man in graphic design’the title is undeserved, the fact of the matter is that he has a unique point of view in a field that is often unfortunately defined by the latest trends of what merely ‘looks cool at the moment.’ Victore can say more in a single brush stroke than most of us can convey in a month of diddling at our computers. I’m pretty much over the ‘designer vanity monograph’ but this book manages to rise above the ‘show-ff’ standards of such books to convey a real dedication and honesty to the craft of graphic design. Crammed with a plethora of beautifully designed pieces from his early days to the present, the book is designed by like-minded design adventurer Paul Sahre and has a foreward written by probably the smartest person in graphic design at the moment, Michael Beirut – you get a lot of bang for your buck with this book! A welcome addition to any designers collection.
