Massimo Vignelli on Book Design

Massimo Vignelli discusses his approach to book design in a video produced for Mohawk’s "What Will You Make Today?" campaign. Video design by Michael Bierut/Pentagram.

“A grid is the underwear of the book.”

“The scale and pacing of the images is what makes the book. It’s like a film …”

In this short little segment, designer Massimo Vignelli talks about how he designs books, giving what is likely one of the simplest and most elegant introductions to design based on a grid that you are likely to come across. I love how he describes the white space around an image giving it reverence. I’ve never heard it explained quite that way and now it seem like the best visual metaphor.

The Decisive Moment – Henri Cartier-Bresson – documentary film

I started with painting, and drawing, and for me photography was a mean(s) of drawing. That’s all.

Immediate sketch, done with intuition, and you can’t correct it. …

For me it’s a physical pleasure, photography, doesn’t take much brains. Doesn’t take any brains, takes sensitivity, a finger and two legs.

… ‘Cause a camera is a weapon. You can’t prove anything, but at the same time, it is a weapon. It’s not a propaganda mean, photography, not at all, but it’s a way of shouting the way you feel.

You see, the camera, it can be a machine gun; It can be a psycho-analytical couch; it can be a warm kiss; It can be a sketch book, the camera.

Henri Cartier-Bresson: The Decisive Moment is an 18-minute film produced in 1973 by Scholastic Magazines, Inc. and the International Center of Photography
