We are pleased to announce our most ambitious Unit publication to date – a numbered, limited edition, deluxe monograph of the legendary Herb Lubalin, one of the foremost graphic designers of the 20th century. Along with Saul Bass and Paul Rand, Herb Lubalin forms a trio of American graphic design greatness.

Herb Lubalin’s work is enjoying an unprecedented revival of interest amongst young graphic designers. The Lubalin cult is global, with strong pockets of interest in Korea, Japan and, of course, the USA and UK.
