The definitive book on the work of Bob Gill, with more than three hundred pieces of his most inventive work, collated from his eighteen books along with some thoughts about how to come up with an original idea.
“If anyone who can type can do much of the work previously done by well-paid specialists, what’s left for the designer? They have to do things that a typist with a computer can’t do. This means they have to be thinkers, problem-solvers, whether they like it or not.”
“When you point a finger at someone, remember, three fingers are pointed at you.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Most of the spreads show a single image to a page. Sometimes a short description runs along the bottom. Gill’s work doesn’t need much of a description. It’s obvious. Not in a bad way, but in the way it’s easy to miss those hidden gems that stare us in the face.

If you don’t have any of Bob Gill’s books, this is the one to buy. Even if you have a couple, it’s still a great addition to the bookshelves.
