perverse optimist

Google Book Search now lists the coolest design book of all time in its search: Tibor Kalman: Perverse Optimist. For the first time, as far as I know, a lot of this material is on the web (amazon's book search previously only had the front and back covers). I assume the reason none of this stuff is documented in any other websites is because of copyright, but I guess google either secured the rights to post these images (these are full page scans!) or just decided they didn't give a shit how the publisher felt. There's still less than 10% of the book online ("Pages 165-406 are not part of this book preview.") and of course everything still looks a million times better In Print.

Be sure to check out the A NEW IDENTITY flowchart. It's hilarious.

you might be able to access the full book if you use the book search through cal's library page, if there's a searchable indexes and databases section. i'm pretty sure vassar has access to it.
