Helvetica, Objectified, Urbanized: The Complete Interviews

I’ve definitely enjoyed the Design Trilogy documentaries about type, objects, and cities. I’ve watched each of them several of times over, and I apparently miss something during each viewing that I retain something new every time I watch them again. And now Gary Hustwit is coming out with an amazing book of the full interviews of the designers shown in the documentaries.

I’m excited to read this book of interviews (and watch the best-of footage not included in the documentaries). It’s a celebration of the people who understand design and are able to change the world by sweating the details in everything they do. So I’m willing to back this Kickstarter project, but I wonder if I’ll be even able to comprehend even a tiny fraction of what the masters have to say in these interviews.
