Stefan Sagmeister

Earlier this year, designer Stefan Sagmeister released his book “Things I have Learned In My Life So Far” to much acclaim and much criticism. I have to laugh at all the people who hate on Sagmeister just for being in the privileged position to make work for fun and still have people buy it. I finally got my hands on the book and I am really enjoying it so far! I guess it’s not actually a book – it’s actually 15 separate little zines each with a different image that can been viewed through the open slots of the front cover.


Side view.

One of the 15 covers.

“Trying to look good limits my life.”

“Everybody who is honest is interesting.”

Each zine visually illustrates one or more truths that Sagmeister has learned, and he collaborated with many artists to bring the statements to life. One statement reads: “Worrying solves nothing” and it was built out of sixty thousand clothes hangers and photographed. I would include a photo but then maybe you won’t buy the book ha!

“The Boooooookshelf” section on the sidebar and will be updated with books I have purchased and loved, or books that are currently on my wish list. There is a great video of the book over on Amazon so you can see more of the artwork inside the book.
