About this book:
Peter Saville is perhaps the most influential graphic designer of his generation. Best known for his seminal record covers for Joy Division and New Order, Saville has also art directed catalogs and advertisement for fashion brands, such as Yohji Yamamoto and Dior, and created corporate identities for Givenchy, Mandarina Duck, and London's Whitechapel Gallery. More recent he art directed CDs for Pulp and Suede and the print campaign for Stella McCartney.
Designed by Peter Saville is the first book of his work. Comprising design for music, fashion, advertising, and art, it chronicles Saville's work from 1978 to the present. The book includes a comprehensive interview by Christopher Wilson as well as essays by style guru Peter York, Music critics Paul Morley and Mirander Sawyer, and design critics Rick Poynor, Emily Kind, and Peter Hall.
Saville was recently voted both "most admired individual working in the creative industries" and "best graphic designer" in a peer pool conducted by Creative Review. The intensity and apparent timelessness of his work has ensured his cult status for 25 years.
