I recall recently a discussion over a book re the same, and it's more than likely this will crop up in a conversation after the event. Please Monsieur Dawg would you be so kind as to give us a heads up nearer the time. (if you remember)

Cheers everso

It's a good book (Reasons to be Cheerful by Paul Gorman) Second edition should be out soon. Since the first edition, Paul says he keeps getting sent more work that is by Barney that he didn't know existed. As he didn't sign his own work, much of it disappeared into the ether, as is the ephemeral nature of graphic design. However, Barney is "the gift that keeps on giving", in Paul's words.

I'll let you know when we're off to the smoke to see this but I may work it in to the start of the new academic year and take students.
