"Our Grotesk Love Affair: A Typographic Experiment" is not only this set of clean and beautifully done typographic posters available for free to download at print quality, but is also a survey about the most popular modern sans-serif typefaces. Created by Stephan de Lange and Ryan Atkinson, a very talented designer from Dubai, obviously well-versed in Swiss design.
I'm going to admit that the reason I first read Michael Chrichton's Jurrasic Park in the seventh grade was all because of my fascination with dinosaurs and the really cool skeletal T-Rex book cover design. 10 years past that, I now find out that it was in fact none other than Chip Kidd, the avid graphic designer and writer responsible for a plethora of other great book covers. His design work for Knopf and Pantheon, imprints of Random House, have contributed greatly to book cover packaging over the past few decades. Really loving the illustrations and side text bars in his work.
