aul Sahre ranks alongside modern-day design heroes Stefan Sagmeister and Chip Kidd as one of

the most influential graphic designers of his generation.

Two-Dimensional Man is a fresh take on the traditional design monograph: part memoir, part art book, part meditation on creativity. Throughout, Sahre combines poignant personal essays about living creatively with artwork culled from his extraordinary 30-year career. In his revealing stories, Sahre portrays the creative life as one of constant questioning, inventing, failing, dreaming, and—ultimately—making. In TwoDimensional Man, Sahre documents how moments like these have informed his life as a designer and artist, and proves that humor and meaning can be found anywhere, if you’re only willing to look.

Paul Sahre is a visual contributor to the New York Times and the author of a book on ham radio. He once built and destroyed a life-size monster truck hearse for the band They Might Be Giants. Sahre received his BFA and MFA from Kent State University, has taught at the School of Visual Arts for the past 13 years, and is an in-demand lecturer worldwide. He is a member of Alliance Graphique Internationale. He works in New York City.

It will change the way you shop.” —Ruth Reichl, author of My Kitchen Year “As fascinating as it is instructive, Ruhlman’s book digs deep into the world of how we shop and how we eat. It’s a marvelous, smart, revealing work.” —Susan Orlean, author of Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend and The Orchid Thief

I

n a culture obsessed with food—how it looks, what it tastes like, where it comes from, what is good for us—there are often more questions

than answers. In his new book, Michael Ruhlman proposes that the best

practices for consuming wisely could be hiding in plain sight—in the aisles of your local supermarket. Grocery is an incisive commentary on America’s relationship with its food and the hazards and confusion that characterize the average supermarket experience. Ruhlman traces the evolution of the local grocery store into the modern mega-market and goes in search of an enlightened retail model, with encouraging results. A mix of reportage and rant, personal history and social commentary, Grocery is a landmark book from one of our most insightful food writers.

Michael Ruhlman has collaborated on several bestselling cookbooks, including The French Laundry Cookbook, Bouchon, and Alinea. He is the author of critically acclaimed books including The Soul of a Chef, The Elements of Cooking, Ratio, and Ruhlman’s Twenty. Ruhlman writes about food and cooking for the New York Times, Gourmet, Food Arts, and other publications. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio, and New York City.
