Does Bones Know About This?
Rewind: Forty Years of Design and Advertising was originally published as a $75 hardcover in 2002 to mark the D&AD's 40th anniversary, which was accompanied by an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Now, Phaidon Press ( has re-released the book in a whopping $49.95 paperback edition. Co-written by Jeremy Myerson and Graham Vickers with a host of guest essayists, Rewind covers everything from print and design to music videos as it easily lives up to its D&AD cachet — the work is drawn from the D&AD archives after all, so pretty much everything sparkles in one way or another, including the design and the organization of the book itself. Seen here are some print ads featured in Rewind, led by a 1976 Collett Dickenson Pearce ad for Heineken.
