Picturing and Poeting
Picturing and Poeting by the late Alan Fletcher, graphic designer of international renown, is the final monograph by a creative doodler who believed strongly in ideas and thinking visually. This book is a great compendium of about 300 colour images of Fletcher’s doodles, collages, graphic objects, drawings and visual surprises, all of which point towards the usefulness and, in fact, necessity of keeping a spirit of playfulness present during design. Sometimes ideas are best conveyed through visuals, and their needs better met this way than through text.
