*** Dorothy and Otis by Norman Hathaway and Dan Nadel

Dorothy and Otis: Designing the American Dream is a beautifully illustrated biography of Dorothy and Otis Shepard, a couple of designers who worked in advertising and design, creating gorgeous, stylized ads but also entire image packages, as for Catalina island for which they even created a typeface. I did not care much about the longish section about the Chicago Cubs, but fully enjoyed the modern approach to promoting Catalina island. One can only imagine what those two would have done with social media!
