Henri's Walk to Paris - Saul Bass





Saul Bass is one of my all time favorite designers, I love how he made the illustrations in this book so graphically pleasing, each page would make a perfect poster. And his colors are just fantastic.

Wohoh I didn't know Saul Bass designed kid's book, this one is great. Did you buy it ? do you know if it's still available to buy somewhere ?

Hey Brune, they should republish this book too.
I only wish I owned this book, I got it from the library, it's really rare and I couldn't find any for sale on the internet.
Good luck in finding a copy!

Wow, thats cool that your library had this book. Its really rare. Actually most of the books published on young scott books are really tough to find.

Oh my goodness. The way he used space, proportion, and the parameters of the page just astound me, even though I've seen a million brilliant illustrations from the '50s, '60s and '00s. Thanks for scanning the whole book!
