That Quotable Tibor

4401.jpg

My hardback of Perverse Optimist had been long lost, left behind in California because I’d loaned it to a friend and forgotten that I had, and then he reminded me (fool!) and then *he* couldn’t find it. So he just sent me a new (to me) hardcover in the mail. Happy me, maybe happy you, if you can stand more Tibor quotes. Here are a few from the first few pages of the book.

Rules are good. Break them.

Good designers (and writers and artists) make trouble.

And another one that I really should tape to my bathroom mirror as a daily affirmation (except that’s not so much my thing.):

Eventually you’ll forget all this but there will be plenty of new ideas to choose from. And I believe that they’ll be better.

The image above is from Colors 4 (Race), published in 1993. (What if… Queen Elizabeth was black?)
