Published on .

A Venezky Meow Mix
New from Princeton Architectural Press is Martin Venezky's It Is Beautiful ... Then Gone, a profusely illustrated $40 hardcover that, according to the publisher, presents Venezky's "commercial design work as well as new graphic work created for the book; details of the wall collage that define his office and his aesthetic; the singular photography, collections and notebooks that define his personality; and text that explains — or at least questions — it all." Venezky, of design firm Appetite Engineers (, also teaches at CalArts and California College of the Arts. His clients include Speak and Open magazines, the Sundance Film Festival, Reebok and various publishers and arts institutions. He's also big on cats, and we're leading here with what he calls "the third in my cat-friendly lecture poster series." See for more.
