Have you ever dreamt of acquiring the most amazing collection of robots? What about being able to take them apart and rebuild them to bring the machines of your imagination to life? Well, here's your chance. This box-set includes fifteen different robot templates designed by Roger Fawcett-Tang, twelve of which have been illustrated and customized by a different trend-setting artist. Though varying in shape, the parts are interchangeable. Three blank DIY sheets also allow you to customize the templates with your very own designs. For robot obsessives of all ages, this playful but also intensely desirable object should become a collector's item in no time. Make sure you buy more than one set, and put at least one aside for the future. They may not change the course of technology or space travel, but they will certainly form a colorful and animated line-up on your shelf.

The 400 marks reproduced within these pages represent the diverse array of identity work produced by Pentagram's partners, past and present, since its founding in 1972. Over the past four decades, Pentagram has designed marks for large corporations and small businesses, government agencies and nonprofit institutions, clubs and societies, and evenindividuals, all of whom were seeking a representative symbol to appear on letterhead and books, buildings and websites, and everywhere else imaginable. Isolating them in black and white helps us appreciate these marks as unique pictorial or abstract symbols. Buta logo is rarely a solitary commission. Often produced in conjunction with a unified graphics, architecture or product design program, it is only part of the work Pentagram does. But regardless of the nature of the assignment, clients all share the same desire to be identified, and the belief that the right mark is a crucial starting point for a comprehensive visual identity. Limited edition, only 1,000 copies for sale.
