A Rare Book Feast
One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?
Nate Burgos is a huge book fan, especially of the rare variety.
The self-described "designer for the fortune 5,000,000" launched a short movie series this month called Rare Book Feast about the timeless character of rare, vintage examples from the "old" print world.
First up is the "World Geo-Graphic Atlas", which was designed by Herbert Bayer with Martin Rosenzweig, Henry Gardiner and Masato Nakagawa and published in 1953.
The book, as Burgos explains in the video after the jump, is 368 pages of charts, graphs, diagrams, and symbols that were created before computers. It goes for about $800 online.
Can't wait to see what else is on the menu ...
