We designed a new logo for Urban Center Books earlier this year as part of our ongoing work for the Municipal Art Society of New York. You’ll find it on bags, bookmarks and on the spine of the new book Unpacking My Library, just published by Yale (book design by Pentagram).
The much-loved architecture and design book store, considered to be one of the best of its kind in the US, is closing in January. MAS is moving to West 57 Street and until new retail space is found the book store will be online only. Anyone who has browsed this place in person knows how much it will be missed. Can’t wait to see it reborn in 2010.
