Beware of the Dogma →

“Beware of the Dogma is a booklet for graphic designers wishing to reflect on and question notions of design as a discipline. It explores the theoretical nature of rules and obedience to them using extracts from an interview with a legal philosopher and the theories of Hart and Kemp. The aim of the book is to encourage designers to understand the goal a rule serves instead of dogmatically following certain rules of typography.”
