John McConnell’s list of collaborators includes many household names – Boots, Faber & Faber, Halfords, Clarks, John Lewis. The man behind the Biba logo (for which he won the D&AD Silver in 1969), the logo of the National Grid and the covers of a Penguin student textbook series from the early ’70s has exerted a quiet influence over British design since the sixties. His awards alone speak to his prowess: the Prince Philip Designers’ Prize (2002) and the title of RDI (Royal Designer of Industry, 1987) among them.

Part biography, part showcase for some of McConnell’s most celebrated designs, this book gathers McConnell’s exclusive redesign for Faber & Faber – a revolutionary new approach to book covers from the early 1980s.
