i think i've finally got my computer mostly back together after that roof leak. phhewww.. while i was checking out blogs and updating myself with whats going on, i some how stumbled upon a really inspiring article on long time art director/book designer for penguin group, Paul Buckley. he is in my book of design heros, along side of chip kidd of course! this man can make any book look like you'd want to read that book at first glance. he has such a "point blank" estetic that is just timeless. His level of work is definatley something of what some day i would like to get to. cheers to you paul and to everything you do!!!
