Good or Bad Design?

Noticed this book in the window of a local charity shop and just had to get it – early 70s design book by Ode Brochmann that covers quite a lot, using a nice simple layout and Alan Fletcher style illustrations (it doesn't specify who the illustrator is so it may be the author). It even tells you what font & leading the book is set in which appeals to the typographic nerd in me.

Turning the mind

Just a quick one to let you know that the new Maps album is out this week at all good stockists (and Spotify)...
