Abbott Miller: Design and Content is the first monograph on the award-winning graphic designer known for his innovative work at Pentagram, where as a partner he leads a team designing books, magazines, catalogs, identities, exhibitions, and editorial projects, creating work that is often concerned with the cultural role of design and the public life of the written word. Collaborating with performers, curators, artists, photographers, writers, publishers, corporations, and institutions, Miller has created a unique practice that alternates between the printed page and the physical space of exhibitions. In his work as an editor and writer he pioneered the concept of designer-as-author, both roles he assumes for this beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated edition. Miller presents his work as a catalog of design strategies, emerging from the unique circumstances of form and content. Four categories: Books, Exhibitions, Magazines, and Identity provide insight into Miller's influences and working process while showcasing his best designs.
  • Features Miller's collaborations with artists such as Matthew Barney, Yoko Ono, Geoffrey Beene, Philip Glass, Twyla Tharp, and Nam June Paik, among many others'
  • Clients include Vitra, Knoll, Harley-Davidson, and Steuben, as well as many museums and publishers'
  • Includes a foreword by popular designer and educator Ellen Lupton


Abbott Miller is a partner in the New York City office of Pentagram and co-chair of the graphic design department at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore
