1992 John McConnell PENTAGRAM PAPERS 19 Woman’s Suffragette Movement WSPU Design

From the wrappers: "Pentagram Papers will publish examples of curious, entertaining, stimulating, provocative, and occasionally controversial points of view that have come to the attention of, or in some cases, are actually originated by, Pentagram."

  Since 1975 Pentagram has issued the Pentagram Papers, a limited edition series of booklets that examine "curious, entertaining, stimulating, provocative, and occasionally controversial points of view" related to design. Published once or twice a year, the Papers have been distributed exclusively to friends and clients of the firm.

  Each Pentagram Paper explores a unique topic of interest -- from the lights of London's famed Savoy hotel to the pop architecture of Wildwood, New Jersey; from the mailboxes of rural Australia to the classroom aids of Mexico. As partner architect James Biber says, "These [pamphlets] began with John McConnell, one of the early partners; he helped developed the ideas; they weren't rubber-stamped. McConnell was keen on ideas. Especially the idea that you could actually learn something."
