Five years in the making, Pentagram: Living by Design (two volumes) is the definitive statement on fifty years of Pentagram, and an in-depth survey of the group from its beginnings in 1970s London to its current status as one of the powerhouses of international design. Book one, The Biography, offers a comprehensive analysis of the group, its partners, its achievements, its multidisciplinary approach and its unique business model. This is accompanied by a plethora of images (some never published), a visual essay of Pentagram’s work across four main sectors, a selection of partners’ writings, a Pentagram family tree, and much more. Book two, The Directory, has profiles of fifty partners, past and present, accompanied by extensive coverage of their work. It’s a stellar roll call: from the five famous founders to some of the most celebrated names in contemporary design. It also includes a list of everyone who worked in the firm’s various offices. Both books are designed by Tony Brook and the Spin design team.
