Pentagram: Marks — 400 Symbols and Logotypes — is available for purchase in a limited edition print of 1,000 copies.
Published by Laurence King, Pentagram: Marks serves as a logo gallery for what is perhaps the most respected design agency on the planet. Logos are displayed in black and white, to focus on the “unique pictorial or abstract symbols”, and each has been allocated a separate page.
Five bookmarking ribbons are sown into the spine, which makes it easy to keep your favourite designs close-at-hand. My only regret is that there aren’t more!
