IDEA / アイデア is a quarterly magazine dedicated to graphic design and typography. It was first published in 1953 by Seibundo Shinkosha Co.,Ltd, and continues to publish today.
The "Extra Issue" was a series that ran parallel to Idea's quarterly magazine and explored a range of different topics and special interests. This Extra Issue takes a look into the world of renowned American design studio Chermayeff & Geismar. This is a softcover volume with a dust jacket and is in good shape.
The issue includes some of the studio's most prolific work such as Xerox, Pam Am and MoMa, amongst many others. These are supported by text-based insight and a number of short articles. These include articles such as Concerning Architecture and Typography; Graphic Design in Public Space and Trademarks penned by either Tom Geismar or Ivan Chermayeff.
