    Scrawl presents “Sketches, drawings, and scribbles from the private letters and notebooks of some of the greatest names in history” as collected by The Strauss Schulson family. Published by Rizzoli:

    From the first ever sketch of the Red Cross logo by its founder Clara Barton to a cartoon scrawled on a love letter from Charles Bukowski, the objects in this fascinating collection are a perfect reflection of the eclectic and storied cast of characters from whose archives they’ve been collected over the years. Organized alphabetically, with a range of influential names, from William Burroughs to Mark Twain, the book is a voyeur’s treasure trove of the ephemeral(…)

    Designers Brankica Harvey and Dan Keegan (associate partners at Pentagram / Eddie Opara) present the collection in a design that is both rigid – as a counterbalance to the lightness of the sketches – but also loud, using color blocks and playful typography in order to amplify that same lightness.

    The near-monolinear Sul Sans (R-Typography) is used for most typography, from headlines to parts of the body text. It is paired with another typeface by Rui Abreu, Gliko Modern, for headlines. Pitch (Kris Sowersby) is used for biographies and page navigation.
