A5/10: Collecting Graphic Design


A5/10: Collecting Graphic Design


The 10th volume of the A5 series focuses on collecting and archiving graphic design. We asked ten collections from around the world — from privately initiated projects to institutional collections — to present highlights from their holdings, along with conversations about the pleasures and burdens of collecting design. 


Among the featured collections are Canada Modern, the Vignelli Center for Design Studies, the Kunstbibliothek Berlin, the Letterform Archive, the Swiss Graphic Design Foundation, the Buenos-Aires-based IDA Foundation, the graphic design documentation center of Aiap Italy, and the ingenious collection of DNP Tokyo.
