- First edition. 'This is not just another book on advertising art. In these pages there is a veritable gallery of contemporary art—a panorama of a grand experiment in foresight and understanding. This venture of employing great artists in industry is not a new one. The creative artist has been used before, but, alas, without vision, and without giving him freedom in the formulation of his ideas and execution of his designs.
But here complete freedom reigns. The age-old animosity and distinction between fine and applied art, the fatal-dualism between art and industry, between beauty and utility are here denied. Our new age admits no such contradictions. The result of that courageous denial is forcefully demonstrated in this book.'

'This is a book about organized product information. It traces the development of improved techniques for clear and precise presentation of facts. Then it demonstrates, with many examples, their application to the design of actual industrial catalogs. Everyone, from presidents to promotion managers, who is concerned with the effect of printed product information on the cost of producing orders will find this book both stimulating and of great practical help.

It is not the usual "how-to" book, with trite formulas and directions. It invites study which will reward thoughtful readers by opening their eyes to unreal­ized opportunities for increasing the effectiveness of their catalogs' contents and format. Catalog Design Progress is a handsome book, beautifully printed in four colors on 100 Ib. paper. Its 106 pages (9XA x 12), most of them illustrated, are plastic bound in stiff covers.

Carrs. A 4 signature from 'Visual Design in Action' published by Hastings House in New York, 1961. Here 4 pages with examples for the image design for 'Carrs Self Service Department Store' New Jersey (1956-57). This brochure with several texts, among which: "creating a store personality"— Sutnar, 1956-57 [for Katz/Waisman/Blumenkranz/Stein/Weber, Architects Associated] To make shopping easier and also more exciting, "Carr's" self-service department stores wished to establish a store atmosphere expressing unity of design with utility and beauty.— The original program called for an extensive study of the visual means that would create an effective prototype environment. The design had to support the store's approach to merchandising. It also had to provide a disciplined visual framework which would be interesting and rapidly understandable with relation to the overwhelming variety of goods on sale. To achieve this, several systems of design controls were set up to provide a distinguishing identity for everything from store signs to shirt labels. These included coordinated layouts, alphabets and colors on the variety of information forms required. Further, a group of symbols was introduced to facilitate recognition of the various departments. The findings of this study were applied when the store was built.— Examples of bags and boxes are illustrated here, with the store identifying design in primary colors. Other problems involved in the execution of the preliminary study are shown on the following visual unit.
