Brodovitch:. Masters of American Design.
New York: Harry N. Abrams, 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. "Brodovitch was the model of the modern art director. The essence of contemporary magazine design - the driving pursuit of new ways to present visual material - can be traced to the example he set. While at Harper's Bazaar from 1935 to 1958, he created a design look whose energy, elegance, and simplicity captured the spirit of American fashion. Magnetic and controversial, he inspired the designers and photographers who attended his famous design laboratory with his constant admonition, "Astonish me!" (from the front cover).
