Sagmeister: Made You Look(Book Design)
All the work we ever designed, including the bad stuff. 
Paperback in a red transparent slip case. Makes that dog go wild.
Removing the book from the red tinted transparent slip case causes the mood of the dog to worsen considerably; bending it over results in the title “Made You Look” (or in the other direction: dog food) showing up on the fore edge.Peter Hall wrote a very detailed text (for a design book), I included handwritten excerpts from my diary and many comments from our dear clients.
