This is a study of contemporary experimental approaches to layout - the essence of graphic design. At the heart of Experimental Layout is the sheer breadth of the discipline of graphic design, its adjustments and accommodation, the innovators and their idiosyncrasies. The theories behind contemporary graphic design are explained by the authors in essays (æSpatial DynamicsÆ, æForm Follows ContentÆ and æWords and PicturesÆ) which provide insights into current debates and the context within which experimental designers work. Interviews with Mark Pawson, Peter Willberg and Ian Warner reveal the processes behind the work, the intentions and motivations. Ian Noble and Russell Bestley have selected work from around the world which they believe ôis united in its concern to try different and challenging approaches, not for the sake of being different but because it is grounded in differenceö. Diaries, magazines, exhibition catalogs and books are among the work included in Experimental Layout. Projects range from rarely-seen personal projects to large-scale commercial work. In each case, the work questions or extends the boundaries of graphic design.

The New York Times–bestselling memoir of crippling depression and the struggle for recovery by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Sophie’s Choice. In the summer of 1985, William Styron became numbed by disaffection, apathy, and despair, unable to speak or walk while caught in the grip of advanced depression. His struggle with the disease culminated in a wave of obsession that nearly drove him to suicide, leading him to seek hospitalization before the dark tide engulfed him. Darkness Visible tells the story of Styron’s recovery, laying bare the harrowing realities of clinical depression and chronicling his triumph over the disease that had claimed so many great writers before him. His final words are a call for hope to all who suffer from mental illness that it is possible to emerge from even the deepest abyss of despair and “once again behold the stars.” This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.
