    Louise Fili: Long Live the Queen


    Who knew the still reigning king of book-cover design, Chip Kidd, once had a female challenger? Apparently back in the ‘80s, when print graphic design was the heart of all creative rage (really, kids, avail yourselves of the interwebs to look up Tibor Kalman, April Greiman, Spy magazine, and a little known artist called Jenny Holzer, among others), Louise Fili was quietly making her mark as the art director for Pantheon Books, where she produced some 2,000 jackets. An overview of the best of these—as well as that of Louise Fili Ltd, the studio she founded in 1989—can be found in Princeton Architectural Press’s Elegantissima: The Design & Typography of Louise Fili. The designer herself collected some 350 examples of her often hand-drawn typography that was used in the service of Sarabeth’s, Jean-Georges, The Mermaid Inn, and the School of Visual Arts. The 256-page monograph is a steal at $40 and a must for package designers and both print and digital typographers.

    The author will be interviewed at the Type Directors Club on September 13. A book signing will be part of the program.
