The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman by
Publication Date: 2011-01-11
When talking to people about visual writing, conversations always seem to come back to The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman. Originally published in the late 18th century in nine volumes, it is still one of the most contemporary books around in terms of how it looks and reads. When Visual Editions briefed design studio, A Practice for Everyday Life, they asked them to breathe new life into the book's design, adding new visual elements, while staying faithful to the original spirit. Will Self introduces the book with typically irreverent brilliance.
