Design & Designer 030 – Raymond Savignac, official blurb: The Design Centre at the University of Quebec at Montreal exhibited 136 of Raymond Savignac’s posters from in 2005. The retrospective was a dream opportunity for the design&designer series to dedicate a title to the man who revolutionised post-war poster design. After devoting a book to the work of the late Roman Cieslewicz, Éditions Pyramyd is revisiting the roots of contemporary graphic design with Raymond Savignac. An inspiration for many artists, Savignac conceived his posters like graphic slogans, at once humorous and spontaneous, and some of them acquired worldwide fame.

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.
