Gerald Cinamon: Collected works since 1958
From 4 September - 6 October ICA presents an exhibition of works by Gerald Cinamon, the renowned typographer and book designer.
"A presentation of work from award-winning typographer and book designer Gerald (Jerry) Cinamon. Looking at his work post 1958, this presentation includes books and book jackets, lettering, posters and writing.
Starting with Cinamon’s early work at Penguin, the selection of works highlights his inventive approach to design, type and layout. The display reveals the influence of Swiss design on his work, which was unique and forward thinking during this period of popular book publishing. Cinamon produced work using bold colour and iconic typography creating signature works that defined his style.”

The Graphic World of Paul Peter Piech
Born in New York, Paul Peter Piech (1920-1996) worked for most of his life as a printmaker in the UK, producing prints, posters and books from his home in the London commuter belt and, later, Wales. Piech’s works, sometimes joyful, sometimes angry, always inventive, tackle the political concerns of the late 20th century, combining the artist’s advertising expertise with his forthright personal beliefs. The Graphic World Of Paul Peter Piech reproduces over 120 prints drawn from the collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the University of Reading.”
