Move over Phaidon Design Classics, there’s a new must-have box set in town. In this corner, weighing in with 3,300 illustrations (3,000 in color), 1,000 pages, and 500 graphic design projects—film graphics, books, magazines and newspapers, logos, album covers, posters, and more—created since the advent of mechanical reproduction, we have The Phaidon Archive of Graphic Design, out this week in a DIY book-in-a-box format. The enclosed dividers can be used to organize the pages (sturdy double-sided cards) according to your own design: chronologically, alphabetically, by designer, by subject, or something more subjective, such as “love,” “hate,” “wish I’d thought of that,” and “so that’s where they got that idea.”
