Design & Designer 021 – Roman Cieslewicz, official blurb: The first posthumous title in the Design & Designer monograph series, this book reveals the works of a major figure of contemporary graphic design. Funny, provocative, and sometimes uncomfortable or disturbing, Ciezlewicz's images leave no one indifferent.

Roman Cieslewicz was a major figure in contemporary graphic design; his images are, and will forever be, of great inspiration. Born in Poland in 1930, he spent most of his life in France. Throughout his career, he displayed exceptional inventiveness: his posters, advertisements and book covers all made a lasting impression on graphic design. In parallel to his work as a graphic designer, Roman Cieslewicz executed personal works, using collage and photomontage to engage images in unusual associations.

Paris-based Pyramyd Editions has regularly been publishing monographs since 2002 featuring work by selected artists, graphic and product designers. These bilingual monographs form part of a series called Design & Designer. The books contain introductions and descriptions in French and English for the many featured project visuals. Each publication title has a serial number (such as Designer & Designer 033 – FL@33).

In some cases – especially within the first 25 of the series – a second and even third edition was published with fresh new content and a 'v.2' or 'v.3' added to the book title. Other titles go out of print and do not seem to be reprinted in the foreseeable future (such as Antoine+Manuel's book for example). At time of writing this text the Designer & Designer series already reached serial number 086.

A few selected titles are available here especially by some of our own contributors who already created button badges and more for Stereohype. Fill any gaps you may have in your collection or start yours today.
