Allison Saltzman: Lit Life

It's an oldie but a goodie (from 2001). Photo by Tina Barney. How much do we love the typography? the colors? the whole freaking layout?

Is that a young Tom Wolfe on the right? It's amamzing - I don't know how this stuff was designed all through the 90s to the early 00s. It's a work of art. It's so alien to what we do now. I think now we're more direct - title, image, to the printer. I mean, it still takes blood, sweat and tears, but when I look at the meticulous font usage, and the use of geometric shapes that was going on just ten years ago, I am seriously stunned!
