Publisher's description: An internationally renowned graphic designer and partner in Pentagram, the world s most famous graphic design firm, DJ Stout is a fifth-generation Texan whose strong sense of place has inspired his design work for over thirty-five years. His contributions to "Texas Monthly," where he was art director for thirteen years, helped the magazine win three National Magazine Awards. "American Photo" magazine named Stout one of its 100 Most Important People in Photography, and "I.D." ("International Design") magazine selected him for The I.D. Fifty, its annual listing of design innovators. The Society of Illustrators honored Stout with the national Richard Gangel Art Director Award, and he was made a Fellow of the Austin chapter of the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) for his lifetime achievements. "Variations on a Rectangle" presents both a career retrospective of DJ Stout's work and his inimitable, often humorous perspectives on publication design. Using nearly eight hundred images to illustrate more than two hundred fifty major design projects, Stout describes the inspiration and creative process behind his highly innovative designs for magazines, books, brochures, posters, and even a fiberglass batcow.
