My book Volume: Writings on Graphic Design, Music, Art, and Culture drops from Princeton Architectural Press on July 21, 2010. The collection presents 29 new and classic text tracks covering critical essays, speculations, polemics, memoirs, ficciones, and more about and around the subtitled topics. In addition to my extensive introduction, the book also features “Liner Notes” by Emigre magazine editor/designer Rudy VanderLans. Stay tuned for info on signed copies of the book (by both me and Rudy) will be offered as a fundraiser to benefit a scholarship for ODU design students. You can also join the book’s Facebook page!
