What a fantastic book that was.
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?

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!

Damn shame about Monsieur Fletcher, I wasn't trying to derail this thread like I do so many others.
"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
I love the man.
I liked his book, talked it up etc but i foundparts of him cloying and he was maybe little too precious with his nonchalance. Still, I'd send him a case of plonk or wendell.
he did a talk at my college and it was very inspiring. he seemed like a very kind fellow too.
