Replete with black-and-white, and colour photographs, portraits, illustrations, et al. No detectable flaws, contents remain bright, clean, and unmarked; near fine and housed in very good+ clear dustjacket. Card Covers. More manifesto than monograph, Life Style is the first book to document Bruce Mau’s creative process and his studio practice, Bruce Mau Design. Conceived and designed by the studio, the book is a singular album of playful and critical statements about the visual and cultural trends that influence today’s image-driven context. This collection of Mau’s essays, observations, anecdotes, and project documentation emobides his unique world view and his belief that form and content are inseparable. The book’s organization echoes his conviction that design is more than an end in and of itself; it is “not separated or segregated from life but instead is integrated with other messy flows. It engages directly with the world.” (#2710) $30.00
