RIP Mr. Fletcher and thanks for teaching me look to sideways.
What a fantastic book that was.
I didn't know.
That's very sad, a true british design legend. My friend had the honour of working with him recently on a children's art book. It shows he carried on with great creativity right until the end!
no way!!!!! i love that book so much
"Many books written on visual matters are authored by those who analyse rather than axperience... They are concerned with the mechanics rather than the thoughts, with the match rather than the fire.
This book attempts to open windows to glimpse views rather than dissect the pictures on the wall. To look at things from unlikely angles... The book has no thesis, is neither a whodunnit nor a how-to-do-it, has no beginning, middle or end. It's a journey without a destination."
Hope your final destination is as wonderful as the windows of perception you opened for me, Mr Fletcher!
A real loss to the industry.
Original thinking and wit that always put a smile on your face.
A true great., up with Rand and Bass IMO.
"any one visual problem has an infinite number of solutions; that many are valid; that solutions ought to derive from subject matter; that the designer should have no preconceived graphic style."
Rest in Peace Mr Fletcher
RIP Mr.Fletcher we salute you!
His work has taught me quite a few things. Great mind.
Augh, Shit - no way?

Ah ha ha - just found some cannabis leaves i was 'pressing' in my Sideways book (I'm a bit of a girl when it comes to flower pressing).. Christ, they must've been there for about 4 years now.
Hm... wonder if they're smokable?
I love the man.
he did a talk at my college and it was very inspiring. he seemed like a very kind fellow too.
Bump for Alan Fletcher.
A bloody shame, The Art of Looking Sideways is one of the best books out there for ANYONE to read, and his death is a real real shame for the world and everyone in it. Thank you AF
