Great designer with a top notch resumé: Doyle Partners, Pentagram, and currently an interactive designer with Crispin Porter + Bogusky here in Boulder. Originally from Frankfurt.

This book is really well done. It’s designed to look like a high school text book, right down to the cheesy diagrams. I especially like the fact that it was banned from Wal-Mart, just goes to show how politically charged some of these big corporations are. Even if it was due in part to the fact that all the justices of the Supreme Court were shown nude on page 99…
