Paul Sahre ranks alongside modern-day design heroes Stefan Sagmeister and Chip Kidd as one of the most influential graphic designers of his generation. Two-Dimensional Man is a fresh take on the traditional design monograph: part memoir, part art book, part meditation on creativity. Throughout, Sahre combines poignant personal essays about living creatively with artwork culled from his extraordinary 30-year career. In his revealing stories, Sahre portrays the creative life as one of constant questioning, inventing, failing, dreaming, and-ultimately-making. In Two-Dimensional Man, Sahre documents how moments like these have informed his life as a designer and artist, and proves that humour and meaning can be found anywhere, if you're only willing to look.
