Mandership by Artemy Lebedev

Problem: Print a collection of sections that have been published online during 10 years.

In 1997 Artemy Lebedev set about writing chapters for his future book about design. A year had passed, but there was not enough material to make a book. So he started to publish the chapters on the studio’s website. In the elapsed 10 years the number of sections has grown so much that publishing them in a book seemed just natural.

For the paper edition, illustrations have been updated, the sections have been revised and partially rewritten.

The book in its dust jacket


“Mandership” does not offer ready-to-use how-tos of design success. Instead it provides food for thought. How to use it—at a fine set table with good wine, or gulping up from a paper plate—is up to the reader.»
