A hefty olive-green box has appeared in our reference section: The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design. This "book-in-a-box" is great (and fun) to sift through for inspiration and enrichment.

Phaidon archive 002     Phaidon archive 001

It contains five hundred sheets of card stock which together give a history of graphic design. Each sheet has two sides: one reproduces an important work of graphic design (see Side 1 below), and one includes the name of the designer, client, title of the piece,  and historical/biographical remarks (see Side 2 below). Works range from the Gutenberg Bible to the Mercedes-Benz logo to the Obama posters (and the Periodic table is in there too!).

Side 1:cheret2 Side 2:cheret1

Also in the box is an index you can use to look up works by title, designer, client, or category. We currently have sorted the pages alphabetically by last name of the designer, but it is possible to sort them chronologically or by category. Which do you think is best?

Quaderns d'arquitectura i urbanisme is a magazine about contemporary architecture, urban planning, and arts published in Barcelona, Spain. It is the Journal of the Association of Architects of Catalonia. The magazine has been in publication since 1944, but has been revamped by a new editorial team since 2011.

Each new issue contains theme, case study, & reference to a past magazine issue, presented in the magazine sections of Visual Essay, the Observatory, & the Archive. As well as looking back to the magazine's past in the Archive section, each issue of Quaderns also looks to the near future with a presentation of the next issue's theme by a guest contributor.

The most recent issues of Quaderns are located on the LADC's current periodicals' shelving.
