Things I have learned in my life so far
Things I have learned in my life so far by Stefan Sagmeister started as a list in his diary and then developed into a series of installations and projects that publicly exhibited these ideas. The “things” are simple ideas that are based on good old-fashioned common sense and experience, but at the same time, are concepts we are likely to forget or overlook. Some statements include “Worrying solves nothing” and “Trying to look good limits my life.” Obvious? Sure, but we all need reminders and this book is full of eye candy to help absorb the message. The format of this book is unusual in that is comprised of a series of booklets in a slipcase. Interchangeable covers included.
