Temptationis a poorly written collage of bombastic erotica cliches, narrated by a tedious, immature and entitled heroine. I’m still not sure whether to be ashamed or proud that I actually finished the book. It is just awful on so many levels.

Two thousand five hundred tons of AWESOME.

(I would like to have seen more sketches and early concept art but still, this highlights a very diverse range of work)

Paul Rand
“Don't try to be original; just try to be good.”
Paul Rand

Elizabeth Gaskell
“I thought, perhaps you might have had something to say, but I see we are nothing to each other. If you're quite convinced that any foolish passion on my part is entirely over, I will wish you good afternoon.'

'What can he mean?' thought Margaret -- 'what could he mean by speaking so, as if I were always thinking that he cared for me, when I know he does not; he cannot. ... But I won't care for him. I surely am mistress enough of myself to control this wild, strange, miserable feeling, which tempted me even to betray my own dear Frederick, so that I might but regain his good opinion -- the good opinion of a man who takes such pains to tell me that I am nothing to him. Come! poor little heart! be cheery and brave. We'll be a great deal to one another, if we are thrown off and left desolate.”
Elizabeth Gaskell

W. Somerset Maugham
“I always find it more difficult to say the things I mean than the things I don't.”
W. Somerset Maugham, The Painted Veil

Paul Rand
“So that is the design process or the creative process. Start with a problem, forget the problem, the problem reveals itself or the solution reveals itself and then you reevaulate it. This is what you are doing all the time. ”
Paul Rand
