The journals of commercial designers, graphic artists, and illustrators become subjects in a new publication from Graphic: Inside the Sketchbooks of the World’s Great Graphic Designers

by Steve Heller and Lita Talarico (Montacelli Press). Whether it’s design and branding, stock illustration, print, interactive media, or typography, ideas are recorded in the artist’s sketchbook long before the finished products are in the public eye. This book illustrates a wide span of creative approaches and techniques with themes as unique as the artists who created them.
