Stallinga: This is Our Logo is a book that I picked up on a trip to New York in 2002. Though I’ll admit that my purchase was based on the amazing cover which is an actual stencil, the work by renowned Dutch designer Henk Stallinga is just as captivating.
I love the typography that’s laced throughout this book. The stenciled text mimics that of the cover and if you choose, you can use it to make your own. A book about design that encourages reader interaction is a beautiful thing.
All of the little icons actually have a corresponding key in the front of the book and some are pretty funny. The human form below stands for ‘Approximate Size Compared to Man.’
