Alexander Girard: A Designer's Universe

In 1965 Alexander Girard reconceived the graphic and color design for Braniff International Airlines, letting himself be "guided by 'two primary and seemingly contradictory design principles: First, design in depth to ensure variety, interest, and lasting excitement. Second, strip beautiful shapes of nonessentials, to permit freest appreciation of beautiful form.' The conventional striped livery of passenger aircraft was dismissed by Girard as camouflage. Instead, he painted the entire fuselage of each Braniff fleet plane in one solid color, chosen from a coordinated palette of seven different hues: yellow, orange, turquoise, dark blue, light blue, ochre, and beige. The same color scheme was employed for the airport service vehicles and also provided a principal design element in the aircraft cabins. The airplane seats were covered with fabric from the furniture manufacturer Herman Miller in two different simple geometric patterns—checkerboard and stripes—in a total of 56 color combinations. Braniff promoted Girard’s design concept with the slogan 'The end of the plain plane.'”

Picturing America's National Parks

"When the American photographer Stephen Shore wrote that, 'Our country is made for long trips,' was he being obvious, merely noting that in a place of such size, epic travel is inevitable, or was it something more profound? America’s newcomers had made long trips to get here. They had the appetite and the experience of distance. More importantly, might we not say that as a nation formed at the onset of an industrial revolution, perhaps even the concept of modern America presumes the need for long trips? The means of travel may come and go, but the impulse is constant." This excerpt from Jamie M. Allen's text and Stephen Shore's "Merced River, Yosemite, 1979" are reproduced from Aperture's centennial photo collection, Picturing America's National Parks.

Imagining the Future Art Book
Sharon Helgason Gallagher

Future of the Art Book

"Paging through a book is like closing a door behind you that simultaneously opens another onto a new room -- all the while keeping the previous room available, just behind the now-closed door of the turned page. Here I am in the hallway of the introduction..." -- excerpt from Sharon Helgason Gallagher's remarks at the New York Public Library panel discussion The Future of the Art Book
