Print of the Week: Abacus By Paul Rand

This weeks Print of the Week goes to Paul Rand. You may not recognise his name but you would certainly have seen his work as he designed the famous IBM and the UPS logo. I love his early book covers from the 1950’s but this design is my absolute favourite. This was originally a photogram that was used for his book Thoughts on Design and printed onto fabric. I love these colours and might try that combination out myself!
