Design lovers, rejoice.
Moleskine, the legendary manufacturer of tools for creativity, brings to us “Inspiration and Process in Architecture”, a collection of cloth-bound monographs exploring the design process of architects. The first four books of the series features interviews, biographies, and images from four international architects: Zaha Hadid, Giancarlo De Carlo, Bolles+Wilson, and Alberto Kalach.
Focusing on key figures in modern and contemporary architecture, these monographs offer a reading of the practice of design which emphasises the value of freehand drawing as part of the creative process. Each volume provides a different perspective, revealing the secrets and insights and at the same time showing the various observation techniques, languages, characters, forms and means of communication.
With this series Moleskine also introduces a new clothbound format, inspired by a classic clothbound style first used by typographer Giambattista Bodoni at the end of the 18th century to protect unbound books. The spine of each book is covered in cloth while the front and back cover in raw grey cardboard – and still maintains the distinctive Moleskine features such as the elastic band, round corners, and inner pocket.
