The four hundred Pentagram marks reproduced on this book represent the diverse array of identity work produced by Pentagram's partners, past and present, for the reason that company was once founded in 1972.
Over the last four decades, Pentagram has designed marks for large corporations and small businesses, government agencies and non-profit institutions, clubs and societies, or even individuals, all of whom were searching for a representative symbol to appear on letterhead and books, buildings and internet sites, and in every single place else possible.
Previously only distributed in a limited edition, this invaluable book Pentagram Marks is now made to be had in a paperback version and will provide inspiration for all graphic designers working on identity projects.
Each logo commands one page, giving it ample space to breathe.
I think this is a good decision because logo compendiums can be very overwhelming when logos are presented in a grid.
Also, the logos are all printed in black & white, which draws greater attention to their form.
I think Pentagram Marks is a good reference book for anyone interested in logo design.
