Stuart Geddes 17 Graphic Design Work Pty Ltd Robin Boyd: Late Works
This book documents and discusses the under-scrutinised late work of key Australian Modernist Robin Boyd. Under-scrutinised because in its experimentation and scale it seems, to some, to undermine Boyd’s legacy. The book design is an amalgam of Boyd and period references, made now through a contemporary frame. A modesty of scale and means is at its core — a little over a hundred pages, paperback, and printed in two colours. But a systematic scale is also at heart here, with a complex grid and typography developed from Boyd’s Carnich towers, a key late project.
