    I was inspired to read this book after seeing David Carson in the documentary film Helvetica I loved his assertion that you can't assume something communicates just because it's legible This book was my lunch buddy for a couple of weeks as I studied its contents I was uplifted every day by the notion that you can throw out all the rules and succeed beautifullyThe End of Print provides plenty of examples of Carson's exciting approach to graphic design including one of my favorites mentioned in Helvetica He was once asked to lay out a magazine article about Bryan Ferry Carson read the interview and felt it covered no new ground He tried setting the text in every single typeface he had installed on his computer at the time working his way through the alphabetical listing until he got to the last one So he set the entire story in Zapf Dingbats and the magazine printed it that way My heroEarly in his graphic design career Carson worked at a skateboard magazine that allowed him to experiment During this time Carson learned to uestion any formal preconception Now thanks to this book I'm doing of that myself

    Anything that David Carson touches turns to golden chaos He is the edge of the cutting and 'Born to be Wild' is probably his anthem The bane of art teachers everywhere there is a freedom in his style flies in the face of reason I can't remember what this book is about though all i remember is the graphics

    In my past life I was a graphic and layout artist for magazines All because I was puttering around a bookstore and my eye caught a weird magazine cover The cover was by David Carson and the magazine was RAYGUN It was the start of an obsession I believe that Carson revolutionized how magazines are designed although his critics disagree

    I loved this designer in the 90's Looking upon his stuff now it seems so dated Probably because he was so imitated that it obliterated his work This is what I'll probably say of Rex Ray's work in another decade
