OUT + ABOUT Pentagram Pentagram is a “remarkable and unprecedented design partnership.” Milton Glaser. “Since 1975, the famed international design firm Pentagram has produced a series of signature documents known as the Pentagram Papers, exclusively for clients and colleagues. The design brilliance and quiry sensibility of the papers has never before been made available to the public at large.” “Each paper explores a different and curious topic that, at one time or another, has caught the interest or sparked the imagination of the Pentagram partners. From the iconic to the obscure, the topics illustrate a wide variety of influences.” The Pentagram Papers
