The grid is an integral part of book design. It’s not something that you see. It’s just like underwear: you wear it, but it’s not to be exposed. The grid is the underwear of the book.
Minimalism is about creating complete harmony and not about making simple.
The details are details. They make the product. The connections, the connections, the connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life.
Modernism was and still is the search for truth, the search for integrity, the search for cultural stimulation and enrichment of the mind. Modernism was never a style, but an attitude.
Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.
Good design is as little design as possible.
