Magnani -

Format 25,8 x 19,5 cm. 400 pages. Paperback.


A key figure in graphic design and publishing, Etienne Robial is at the crossroads of several disciplines: artist, publisher, teacher, and designer. In this book, he gathers his memoirs as a visual manipulator and historian of forms. The designer of the most striking television visual identity of the twentieth century (Canal+) submits to posterity the complete set of all his works, all his personal research and famous or unknown contributions from the alphabets he designed throughout his career.

On 400 pages abundantly illustrated with photos and sketches from his personal archives (more than 2000 documents), Etienne Robial himself details and comments on 50 years of work that now belongs to the French cultural heritage (Futuropolis, Métal Hurlant, A Suivre, L'Equipe, Les Inrocks, PSG...). Etienne Robial's key relationship with alphabets, his science, art and erudition of the letter and the image inhabit the pages of this book and are now to be shared with all art, design and history lovers; whether they are laymen, students or professionals.
