Looking Closer Closes Its Eyes

978-1-58115-471-9-2T.jpg

The powers that be have informed us that the 5th volume of Looking Closer, out this month, will be the last. Published since 1994, the essays in the Looking Closer series were basically the precursors of the design blogs we know and love today–a sturdy, highly-influential collection of critical writings on graphic design. But not too serious; some of the pieces were pretty damn hilarious, too. The editors throughout the years–Michael Bierut, William Drenttel, Steven Heller, DK Holland, Jessica Helfand, Rick Poynor–drew a hearty list of famous contributors, and launched the writing careers of many others. Looking Closer, we’ll miss you.
